Brexit as a window of opportunity for treaty reform in the EU

The decision of the UK to leave the EU has important constitutional implications for the EU. Whether they like it or not, after the UK formally withdraws, the remaining EU member states will need to change the EU treaties and other quasi constitutional EU laws to account for a new Union at 27. Federico Fabbrini explains why Brexit is a window of opportunity or a broader constitutional reform of the EU.

Prof. Federico Fabbrini is Professor for European Law at the Dublin City University, he formally worked for the University of Copenhagen.
