Abstract

'Brexit' represents the UK with multiple challenges, inter alia, for the coherence of its 'unwritten Constitution' as well as for its territorial integrity. This paper assesses the extent to which the UK has become constitutionally compromised through this process, whether it has shifted towards a form of governance by 'elective dictatorship' and now finds itself on a path to both increasingly turbulent relations with the EU and increasingly problematic policy contestation within the UK.
