Brexit Means Brexit, but What Does the Second Brexit Mean?

Our analysis takes into consideration three different time blocks: we first consider how Britain came to Brexit, how the concept of Sovereignty has been challenged by participation in the European project and how Sovereignty and its implications have led to vote. The second part of the work concerns what will happen actually with the real exit, how the process will be managed from a legal point of view and how the concept of Sovereignty will be involved in this delicate transition. Finally, we analyse the stage after the official separation, taking into account the consequences on both the national and the European level. We consider the consequences on domestic legislation and on the effects that the EU may continue to produce on it, as well as on the future development of two crucial aspects of the European dimension, namely free movement of persons and European citizenship, closely linked since the introduction of the Maastricht Treaty in 1992.
