Prime Minister Teresa May faces an uphill struggle to convince the British House of Commons to back the agreement she has reached with the EU27 on withdrawal from the European Union, in a crucial vote set for 11 December. Although the deal was approved by her Cabinet and all EU leaders, the divorce terms have been criticised by many Members of Parliament, both advocates of a no-deal departure from the Union and those who would like the United Kingdom to remain within th Union or have the closest possible ties with it from outside.

In a parallel development, an Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the European Union has issued an opinion that the UK government may unilateraly withdraw its notification of intent to leave the EU, where the departure date is currently set for 29 March 2019. In the past, the Court has followed its advocate generals’ opinions in most cases.

This note offers links to reports and commentaries from some major international think-tanks and research institutes on Brexit negotiations and related issues. More reports on the topic can be found in a previous edition of ‘What Think Tanks are thinking’, published in October 2018.
