29 March 2017 Shortly after Theresa May triggered Article 50, Angela Merkel gave a response. Her comments on the UK-EU negotiations are already being over-interpreted. Sky News, AFP, the Mirror, the Independent and many others are reporting that she has ruled out parallel negotiations. In fact what she has said is: “In the [Brexit] negotiations, […]
30 March 2017 Today David Davis’s Department for Exiting the European Union published a White Paper on the Great Repeal Bill. Or rather, they published a document that carried the more prosaic header: Legislating for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union. It’s reasonably short, but well-written and clear. The point of the badly-named […]

Outside the EU, Britain will need to determine its own international trade and commercial policy, setting its own tariffs and negotiating its own bilateral free trade agreements. Open Europe’s new Global Britain report has identified the markets in which the UK should seek to deepen its trade relationship and where it should seek to exploit opportunities to improve its export performance.

The public spat between Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker has diverted attention away from EU demands for extra-territorial jurisdiction over the rights of EU nationals in the UK that no British leader could ever accept.

Labour’s manifesto pledge to end free movement may appear to have added detail to Labour’s Brexit stance, but it has not added clarity on how a Labour Government would address the practical trade-offs that will inevitably be necessary in negotiation with the EU. Alex Greer searches for Labour’s Brexit red lines in its published manifesto.

The European Court of Justice judgement on the EU-Singapore trade deal outlines in more detail the division of trade policy competences between the EU and member states. Open Europe's Aarti Shankar assesses what precedent this sets for a future UK-EU agreement.

As well as making a definitive pledge to withdraw the UK from the EU Customs Union, the Conservative manifesto delivered a raft of eye-catching commitments on controlling immigration. Alex Greer looks at the detail and assesses what the proposals would mean for the UK in Brexit negotiations and beyond.

The latest release of net long-term international migration figures by the ONS shows a significant fall in EU migration, and a collapse in net migration from Eastern and Central European countries. Open Europe's Aarti Shankar looks at what might be behind this decline and suggests some effects from the Brexit vote may be visible.
Open Europe's Georgia Bachti and Vincenzo Scarpetta will update this live blog throughout the day with reactions to the outcome of the UK General Election from politicians and press across Europe.
A Conservative-led government will rely on the support of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP). The two parties broadly see eye-to-eye on the key Brexit issues, which are customs union and single market withdrawal. But the DUP’s likely desire to avoid a ‘No deal’ scenario reduces the credibility of Theresa May’s ‘No deal better than bad deal’ stance. Overall, the Prime Minister’s hand in Brussels has been weakened.
Amid suggestions the UK government should "soften" its Brexit position and reconsider maintaining the UK's place in the EU single market, Open Europe's Aarti Shankar argues EEA membership would not be a suitable long-term arrangement.

Open Europe’s Vincenzo Scarpetta looks at the European Commission’s new proposals for the supervision of non-EU clearing houses handling euro-denominated transactions – which are of great interest to the UK in light of Brexit. The approach chosen looks far more cautious than previous declarations made by several senior politicians across Europe.

As the recent General Election has given the Labour Party a more important role in Brexit, Open Europe’s Dominic Hinde argues that it must end the confusion over its Brexit strategy and provide clarity on its approach to the single market.

Open Europe’s Stephen Booth explains the various Brexit components of the Queen’s Speech and argues that, despite accusations of putting forward a “thin” legislative programme, government and parliament will have more than enough work to be getting on with over the next two years.
With a new study by Deloitte finding that a ‘no deal’ Brexit would have a severe impact on the German car industry, Open Europe’s Georgia Bachti argues that the unity of the EU27 position will only really be tested when talks move from details of UK withdrawal to the new trade terms.
