Brexit: Getting Started

This guide is based on work by Jim Church, University of California, Berkeley Libraries and emphasizes official government statements and publications along with responses from think tanks.


Developments surrounding the "Brexit" or vote on the Referendum of the United Kingdom's Membership of the European Union are evolving.  At present most research has been published by think tanks and governments.  Some coverage can be also be found in academic journals from the UK such as International Affairs and Political Quarterly

The European Documentation Centre at Cardiff University has an excellent guide to the Brexit Debate.  The British Library also has a EU Referendum Information Guide.
