Special Issue:  "Beyond de-Europeanisation: Analysing the Multiple Trajectories of British Politics and Policies after Brexit"

Agathe Piquet and Sarah Wolff, co-investigators of the NEXTEUK project, have coordinated a Comparative European Politics Special Issue revisiting the concept of disengagement and deuropeanization and expanding it with the notions of continued engagement and re-engagement. Based on various public policy case studies the project shows that Brexit is not necessarily the end of the EU's influence and that the UK is likely to converge with EU legislation by necessity or by choice in some policy fields.
