Outside the EU: Options for Britain

Front Cover

Agenda Publishing, 2020 - HISTORY - 256 pages
In the debates about the UK's future relationship with the European Union, all sorts of possible alternatives have been bandied about, from "Singapore on the Thames" to "Canada Plus", from "Switzerland" to "Ukraine", from "Norway" to "Australia". But what do these alternative relationship models really consist of and would they be viable for the UK?

Martin Westlake brings together distinguished contributors to examine these various options, real and potential, and to consider whether they would offer a workable solution for the continued relationship between the EU and post-Brexit Britain.

These essays offer expert insight into the scale and challenge of the practical issues facing Britain as it seeks to establish a new future with its largest trading partner.
