Brexit has dominated British politics unlike any other topic before. It is a multidimensional problem. The Brexit referendum tells us a lot about divisions in British society. The debate on Brexit brings us right to the heart of the power struggle inside the Conservative party. The external dimension of Brexit is not only about the future relationship of the EU and the UK; it is also about Britain in a global world. Brexit has profoundly changed British politics and has redefined regional politics (Scotland/Northern Ireland) in the UK.
