Brexit, Citizenship and Sovereignty: A Short Analysis of the Court of Justice’s Judgment on the Revocation of Article 50 TEU

Speakers Series open lecture by Professor Jo Shaw, New Social Research Programme of Tampere Unversity

Since the judgment of the Court of Justice in the so-called Wightman case, referred by the Scottish courts, we now have some insights into what the process of withdrawal from the European Union looks like from a legal perspective. In its judgment, the Court emphasised the sovereignty of the withdrawing state and also noted the impacts of withdrawal upon all EU citizens. This paper will analyse some of the issues that this raises for issues of sovereignty and citizenship in what has been called the UK’s “troubled membership” of the European Union.
