Brexit Notes: What should and what is likely to happen next?

The Dahrendorf Forum’s board member Henrik Enderlein outlines 6 simple questions that should serve as guidelines in the current debate on Brexit and the European project.

The Brexit vote is the answer to a simple question: together or alone. Britain has decided to go alone. It is important to differentiate between what SHOULD happen and what is LIKELY to happen.

1 When will Article 50 be triggered?
2 Which negotiation under Article 50?
3 Is there scope for an enhanced associated membership?
4 Should the EU further integrate as a reaction to the Brexit vote – or rather stop integration now because of the rise of Euroscepticism?
5 Should there be a multi-tiered Europe?
6 Should there be Treaty change?
