As the United Kingdom negotiates Brexit, the policy implications and challenges that lie ahead are uncertain. Janice Morphet takes a long-term view in Beyond Brexit?, exploring the range of institutional and operational options that may be deployed by the United Kingdom, European Union, and other international institutions seeking to influence the negotiations and outcome. The book offers context for the current debate and a new framework with which to assess and discuss the forthcoming negotiations, taking into account the likely impact of future EU policies on the United Kingdom and analyzing the implications of policies foregone. Morphet also discusses what Brexit means for the United Kingdom’s devolved nations and the island of Ireland, where the Good Friday agreement and border management are serious enough factors to give pause to the whole process.
Review Quotes
Colin R. Talbot, University of Manchester
"The UK government’s decision to seek to leave the European Union as a result of an advisory referendum is like throwing a very big rock into a very large pond. Morphet provides a useful and timely guide to the resulting bigger waves and smaller ripples of ‘Brexit.’"
Claire A. Dunlop, University of Exeter
"Morphet offers a timely and much needed analysis of the effects, implications, and challenges posed by Brexit. Critically, the book looks not just at the story emerging within the United Kingdom, but also examines the prospects for Anglo-Irish relations."
Polly Toynbee, journalist and author
“Morphet is fair, balanced, lucid, and rigorous, and that’s why Gove, Farage, and the Leavers will hate this book: exiting the European Union cannot but be a tremendously complex and protracted affair.”
