This guide is intended to provide a starting point for your research on the European Union and Brexit.

The U.K. Officially Leaves the European Union

On January 31, 2020, at 23:00 GMT the United Kingdom officially left the European Union. Most U.K. laws will remain in force until December 2020 during a transition period when the U.K. and E.U. will attempt to negotiate trade and legal arrangements. Information on EU representation in the U.K. after Jan. 31, 2020 can be found at this link:

Welcome to the European Union Research Guide

The European Union is the result of an economic and political partnership between European countries.  Originally devised at end of World War II, the EU consists of a number of different institutions that negotiate intergovernmental decisions in various areas, including law and economics. A good staring point for your research is the EU itself, which has a wealth of resources on its webpages regarding EU history, institutions and documents.  In addition, you can use OneSearch to find recent books, academic, and news articles on the EU and Brexit.  The library's political, economic and business databases are also good sources of information
