Brexit explained
On 23 June 2016, the UK voted in a referendum to leave the European Union. The vote clearly has far-reaching implications for the UK's relationship with the EU and may even lead to the break-up of the UK itself. Mark Stephens and Richard Turkington attempt to explain what happened in the referendum, why it happened, and its implications. Will it actually lead to the end of free movement of people to and from Britain? The authors welcome your view on the subject via enhr@tudelft.nl.
