UK Referendum – scenarios, procedures and models

Friday 17 June, 2016

June 23 will mark a turning point in Europe’s history, when the UK votes on whether or not to leave the European Union. This is an unprecedented situation, with potentially far-reaching  ramifications. The actions of one Member State could have a significant impact on the future of the other 27 – and the Union itself. The world will be watching closely.

Without speculating on the results, this Weber Shandwick memo provides a brief overview of the potential scenarios that could emerge following the referendum. We take a deep dive into the negotiation procedures for both revoking membership and developing a new framework for the UK-EU relationship, should British voters decide to leave. Five possible models for what that future relationship could look like are also examined. Please read our memo here.
