Brexit: The evolving story

Last year we curated a virtual special issue looking at the UK's milestone referendum on European Union membership, investigating the background and initial repercussions of the landmark event.

As the UK now takes steps toward negotiating the complex and untested process of separation, we're taking a look at recent research to learn more about the outcome of the Brexit vote, what the implications have been so far, and expert predictions for the future.

Read on to discover more about the economic consequences, at a local and global level, the legalities of triggering Article 50, and what the result might mean for politics elsewhere in the world. These articles will be free to read when accessed through this page until the end of June 2017.

We're also revisiting last year's virtual special issue, which will be available again until the end of June 2017.
