This collection of essays examines the social and political factors involved in the referendum of 23rd June 2016 which led to a vote for Britain to leave the European Union. The authors present the findings of a conference held on 9th September 2016 at All Souls College, Oxford, where Ministers, senior officials from the Brexit departments, Number 10 and Cabinet Office representation came together with leading experts, academics and former Cabinet Ministers. They discuss procedures for the UK’s exit from the EU, the restoration of governing powers, and a good outcome for access to the rest of the EU’s markets. They conclude that the UK government should not negotiate over taking back control of borders, laws and taxes or be willing to negotiate its future sovereignty with the rest of the EU.
