The British Decision
As a result of the 2016 vote to leave the European Union, the United Kingdom is currently in a state of transition. While Article 50 began the official process of removing the country from the EU by April 2019, the recent 2017 General Election has left British Parliament without a clear majority party in office to offer a smooth transition.
In light of these events, Palgrave Macmillan is offering research, educated opinions and free articles to clarify and expand on the many aspects of Brexit and the state of the United Kingdom.
