The draft EU/UK Withdrawal Agreement under Article 50/TFEU




Fide continues to work with Cristopher Muttukumaru in analysing the progress being made by the Brexit negotiations. In this new draft, Christopher answers questions such as:
  • In negotiating the draft Withdrawal Agreement, what is the ideology that lies behind the policy rhetoric?
  • What is the broad scope of the draft Withdrawal Agreement?
  • How will the UK give effect to its obligations in the draft WA? What are the UK parliamentary steps that lie ahead?
  • To what extent are the enforcement provisions in the draft Withdrawal Agreement agreed? Why do they matter?
  • What will happen in the transition period? Is the EUWB compatible with the obligations which the UK intends to assume under the Withdrawal Agreement?
  • What will happen to ongoing cases and issues which straddle either side of exit day?
  • Cases arising outside the transitional period
 
The draft can be downloaded from this link, or it can be found below, at the bottom of the article.
