Timely and engaging, this topical book examines how Brexit is intertwined with the concepts of justice and injustice. Legal scholars across a range of subjects and disciplines utilise a multitude of case studies from consumer law, asylum law, legal theory, public law and private law, in order to explore the impact of Brexit on our ideas of justice. The book as a whole aims to engage with the methodology, lexicon and explicitness of analytical perspectives in relation to Brexit.

The EU is the epitome of a globalised world: an organisation with a huge number of members, partners and collaborators, seeking to further common goals, with pooling of resources to address shared concerns. Much attention has been paid to justices or injustices in relation to the impact that they have on beginning or increasing global relations, and in turn on individuals or groups. This thought-provoking book analyses the reverse: what justice is brought about by withdrawal therefrom?

On Brexit will be of great interest to students and academics working on EU law and politics and global relations due to its interdisciplinary nature. It will also be a key resource for both UK and EU governments and policy actors seeking to broaden their perspective on Brexit.
