European Union - United Kingdom relations

After a year and a half of negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union a compromise on the text of the Brexit agreement was reached on November 14, 2018. At an Extraordinary Council in Brussels on 25 November 2018, the European Heads of State and Government approved the Treaty on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union as well as the Political declaration on the future relations between the EU and the UK. The agreement has to be ratified by the British Parliament and by the European Parliament in order to enter into force on 29 March 2019.
The regulation of the future relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union is one of the most important issues for the EU. The Robert Schuman Foundation offers a pedagogical dossier presenting the issues that led to the Brexit referendum, the negotiations, as well as the challenges for the future relations between the UK and the EU.
