You’ve most likely heard about “Brexit” lately. But what is Brexit, and why does it matter?

After passing a referendum to leave the European Union (EU) in June of 2016, Brexit has become a topic of global concern with far reaching ramifications. With the date for Britain’s departure now being pushed from March 29, 2019 to April 12, 2019, this developing story will continue to dominate headlines and raise concerns for the stability of the EU. This Fordham Library Research Guide, prepared by two of our reference librarians, provides information on this highly contested and continually evolving topic. On the guide, you will find resources for high quality, timely information on Brexit and what it means for the EU.
