Brexit Negotiations after Article 50: Assessing Process, Progress and Impact brings together contributors from academia, politics and practice to discuss and debate the progress (or lack of) to date since the Prime Minister, Theresa May, enacted the Article 50 process to leave the EU on 29th March
This collection is split into two key areas of inquiry. The first section explores the process of Brexit and the multifaceted aspects of the Article 50 process, examining the arguments for and against membership of the European Union. The second section develops the arguments within the first
section by providing thematic chapters on the likely impact of Brexit on particular sectors of the UK economy, namely: the financial services sector; SMEs and related supply chain issues; and, the automotive sector (as an emblematic sector for UK manufacturing).
The book will make a unique contribution to the debate on Brexit as it brings together academics and practitioners from both a 'Remain' and 'Leave' persuasion, including Sir Bernard Jenkin, MP, economist Vicky Pryce and philosopher AC Grayling.
This timely book provides an invaluable analysis of the impact the Brexit decision has had, and will have, on Britain’s universities. International by nature, British universities draw their students and staff from across the global community. Britain is a major beneficiary of
EU-sponsored research funding through the Horizon 2020 scheme and partnerships as part of the European Research Area. Britain’s universities have world-leading reputations, with the UK sector second only to the United States in international prestige. Brexit has – already –
affected this, with a drop in student recruitment from abroad and an increase in EU academics electing to leave the British university system.
British Universities in the Brexit Moment offers the first book-length treatment of these issues. It situates the ‘Brexit question’ in the context of prevailing developments in UK higher education such as marketization and provides an indispensable guide to the material impacts of Brexit
on Britain’s universities.
From the moment Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader, Corbynism has been dismissed, derided or romanticised, but rarely taken seriously as a set of ideas on its own terms. This book critically outlines the shared understanding of capitalism and its alternatives that unites the component parts of
the Corbyn movement. It decodes the central tenets of the Corbynist worldview, showing their coherence with contemporary political-economic shifts and conspiratorial understandings of global capitalism as a 'rigged system' common to populist nativism in an age of Trump and Brexit.
The European Union’s security strongly relies on the member states' capabilities of working together, sharing information and cooperating on issues of common interest. Security against transnational threats and challenges is better and more easily protected within a cooperative framework.
With Brexit affecting all dimensions of UK and EU public life, this book creates a comprehensive insight into the complex issues facing security in a series of post-Brexit scenarios. Topics discussed include: Legal frameworks
Law Enforcement and EUROPOL
Information Systems and Sharing
The Irish Land Border.
European Security in a Post-Brexit World is a useful read for any academic researcher, student or practitioner working in the areas of Security, Criminology and Brexit Studies.
Brexit is arguably the most significant UK foreign and economic policy event since at least 1945. Opinion is bitterly divided between whether to leave, when to leave, how to leave and even on what Brexit is. Mastering Brexits Through the Ages: Entrepreneurial Innovators and Small Firms - The
Catalysts for Success explores these dynamics through the lens of three previous 'Brexits' – the end of Roman Britain, the Henrician Reformation, and the Elizabethan age. Using multiple historical epithets, it illuminates insights into innovation needs, smaller firm growth, previous step
change events and related economic understanding. This book paints a broad picture of possible UK post-Brexit landscapes.
Echoing an earlier European Treaty (Versailles, 1919), fourteen action points that can contribute to mitigating downside risks and making post Brexit UK a leading force in the Global Economy are identified. At all times, dynamic entrepreneurs and small companies are at the centre of the
This book is both a key contribution to understanding implementation risks and to identifying what a 'winning' post-Brexit UK economy should look like. Drawing on extensive research, the book identifies the strategic framework and associated practical measures needed to realise a positive outcome.
It concurrently analyses Brexit mythology through carefully unpicking and demystifying complexities, anticipated Brexit risks, impacts, implications and unknowns. A book for academics, policy makers, advisers and interested bystanders alike.
Tales of Brexits Past and Present: Understanding the Choices, Threats and Opportunities In Our Separation from the EU provides a compelling insight into the Brexit process in a uniquely historical context. Looking at previous 'Brexits' under the lens of international risk, the book tackles five
specific themes relating to the Brexit result - competition in the global innovation economy, the generational split, the 'left behind' aspirational working and middle classes, the impact on international relations, and popularism in the internet age.
By looking to the past, this book will offer insights into what we might expect in the future, providing an engaging narrative that will open the minds of readers to the options, risks and opportunities that could be unmasked in the Brexit process.
On 23rd June 2016 the United Kingdom shocked the world by voting to leave the European Union. In this clear and concise book, Graham Taylor argues that the result is the most visible tip of an iceberg of social change that has been decades in the making. Hidden from view are a matrix of economic,
socio-cultural and political dynamics that have wrought fundamental changes to the British state and society and the relationship between the UK and the rest of the world. These dynamics include the development of an increasingly financialized economy, de-industrialization and an increasing
polarization of power and wealth, the resurgence of nationalism and sub-nationalisms and the realignment of electoral politics and emergence of political populism.
This book highlights the historical and multifaceted nature of Brexit and its significance for Britain’s future, providing a rigorous and forensic analysis of the most dramatic event to confront contemporary British society since the Second World War.
