The UK referendum [What Think Tanks are thinking]

Written by Marcin Grajewski,

On Thursday 23 June, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in a referendum, leaving citizens, politicians and investors uncertain about the future of EU-UK relations and about the move’s long-term implications for the country concerned, the European Union as a whole and the wider world.

This note offers links to recent commentaries and reports from major international think tanks on issues raised by the British referendum. More studies on the topic can be found in a previous edition of ‘What think tanks are thinking’ from February 2016.
