TORRECUADRADA GARCIA-LOZANO, Soledad  and  GARCIA FUENTE, Pedro. What is Brexit? Origin and Possible Consequences. Anu. Mex. Der. Inter [online]. 2017, vol.17, pp.3-40. ISSN 1870-4654.

The British withdrawal from the European Union is an extremely topical issue, casting doubts in the scholars as we are facing a new subject that had been unsuspected until the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom announced a referendum on the country’s permanence in the Union. The negotiations on the future relationship of the United Kingdom and the European Union will test the strength of the Organization in front of the leaving country. This paper addresses the main factors surrounding the Brexit decision and its eventual implications, bearing in mind that the negotiations have not yet begun. In any case, it is the authors’ purpose to identify some policy areas which will be necessarily affected in this process, without providing more solutions than those arising from the legal analysis of the given situation.

Keywords : European Union; Members States; withdrawal procedure; Common Commercial Policy; External Action; Common Security and Defense Policy.
