Analysis by Zsuzsanna Csornai.
This analysis intends to find the answer to the question of whether the Brexit issue highlights the EU’s fractures. The issue of the United Kingdom possibly leaving the EU – commonly referred to as ‘Brexit’ – has been a hot topic over the past couple of months, and rightly so: the outcome of the referendum has fundamental implications for the future of the Union. Most analyses tend to concentrate on the potential economic, political, and social consequences of a possible British vote to leave the EU. This study, however, aims to assess Brexit from the perspective of the ongoing crises and dilemmas currently facing the European Union.
