Britain and the EU: a negotiator's handbook (2015:7epa)


Two years ago Prime Minister David Cameron pledged to renegotiate the United Kingdom’s EU membership and then hold a referendum if reelected. The date of the election, 7 May, is approaching and the question of who will win the election and what that will mean for the relationship to the EU is of interest to many Europeans. 

In this policy analysis, the author Roderick Parkes provides an overview of the political landscape in the UK and presents an analysis of the country´s relationship to the EU.  

The publication is a part of the SIEPS project The political system of the European Union.

Roderick Parkes is a Researcher in the Europe Programme at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, and a Senior Fellow (non-resident) at the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM) and the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP)
