  • Preparing for the UK's Brexit Negotiation

    Theresa May, the new British prime minister, faces a central challenge in deciding the UK’s next steps towards the EU. On the one hand, a clear majority of the British electorate voted in the 23 June referendum for Britain to leave the EU. She has no choice but to follow through on the result. On the other, Leave supporters did not vote for a specific version of Brexit. Alongside the many who were determined to free the country from the costs and constraints of EU membership, the majority included an anti-austerity and anti-globalization protest vote and those with a vision of a buccaneering ‘global Britain’.
