Abstract

On June 23, 2016 the United Kingdom held a referendum to decide either in favor of remaining a member of the European Union, or of leaving it. The referendum resulted in a vote barely favoring to leave, also called the British exit, or "Brexit." Questions have been raised about what this means and what should be done. In this paper I will examine how international relations theory can help explain the Brexit result.
