Brexit: make or break? [What Think Tanks are thinking]

Written by Marcin Grajewski,

Brexit deadline concept. With an alarm clock at almost 12 o'clock. With the flags of the Union Jack and the E.U over layered on top.

The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has presented a draft text to replace the ‘Irish backstop’, with the aim of reaching agreement with the other 27 EU leaders on the United Kingdom’s orderly withdrawal from the EU in the coming weeks. While the UK withdrawal is currently scheduled for 31 October, the UK Parliament has adopted legislation obliging Johnson to seek a delay in that date, if no deal is reached by 19 October. But with British politics in turmoil, it remains unclear if the Prime Minister will comply, or, if he does, whether the EU will agree. Economists warn that the UK’s disorderly departure from the EU is likely to have damaging consequences for supply chains in trade and production, transport, the supply of medicines and many other areas.

This note offers links to a series of most recent commentaries and reports from major international think tanks and research institutes on Brexit.
