Special Brexit: Facts, Opinions, Campaign

To leave or to remain? On 23 June 2016, British citizens voted in a referendum on the UK's EU membership.

How did the deal for a referendum between David Cameron and EU leaders come about? How to judge "Brexit" from a democratic perspective?

Is it fair that only the British people can decide by referendum, while the consequences of the decision will be huge for the entire EU? 

Democracy International contributes to the "Brexit" debate in the form of analyses, interviews and events. 

At the same time, Democracy International campaigns for more democracy at EU level under the slogan Stand up for a democratic Europe now!
