The UK’s departure from the EU, now scheduled for 31 January 2020 at the latest, marks an unprecedented twist in the history of European integration. After decades of expansion, this is the first time that a country has opted to leave the Union. The Observatory on Brexit, led by the European Policy Centre and supported by the Jacques Delors Institute, Centre for European Reform, and Centre for International Information and Documentation in Barcelona, seeks to monitor and assess the Brexit process and outcome with a focus on the potential economic, political, institutional and social implications, challenges and opportunities for differentiated integration and cooperation.
