Il Regno Unito si interroga sulla sua permanenza nella UE in vista del referendum del 2017

(Michael Emersone and Steven Blockmans; da: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2350139) The political context for the present project was set by Prime Minister Cameron’s speech about Europe on 23 January 2013, when he announced his intention to “negotiate a new settlement with our European partners”, and submit the results for an ‘in or out’ referendum in 2017. While this five-year process is full of political and economic hazards, one positive feature of it is the British government’s decision to launch a comprehensive and open investigation of all the EU’s competences, based on evidence submitted by independent stakeholders and individuals.
