Abstract:
The people of the United Kingdom voted in favor of 'leaving' the European Union in referendum voting on June 2016. UK decided to opt for a 'Brexit' - a deal to take back control of the UK's laws, borders, economy and finance by exiting from the EU - and to build a new relationship with Europe. Since then the Brexit discourse has focused on the critical question - whether UK will give up the access to the single market and custom of EU and opt for 'Hard Brexit' or will opt to follow the path of 'Soft Brexit' by negotiating a deal with least possible changes in the current relations with the member states of the EU. In order to fully understand the issue it is necessary to have an insight into the relations which existed before the referendum. Tracing the history of the formation of the European Union, time line of Brexit and the final negotiations currently being discussed upon between the EU and Britain, the paper discusses the primary reasons of why Brexit happened. The paper analyses the EU integration, its objectives and the UK-EU relations till the Brexit referendum. It outlines the reasons which led to the decision of the British masses to 'leave vote'. The paper also attempts to throw light on the future of the EU and UK's economic relations and the alternative options of negotiation deals before the UK for making the final Brexit Deal.
