The United Kingdom and the European Union [What Think Tanks are Thinking]

Written by Marcin Grajewski,

European Union leaders meet on 18-19 February to discuss Prime Minister David Cameron’s renegotiation of the United Kingdom’s EU membership, ahead of an in-or-out referendum on the outcome.

This note provides links to recent commentaries, studies, reports and books from major think tanks on Britain’s relations with the EU and renegotiation of the terms of the country’s membership.
