European Parliament Study: Renegotiation by the United Kingdom of its constitutional relationship with the European Union: Issues related to Sovereignty


"A key point of the United Kingdom’s renegotiation agreement with the European Union is sovereignty. Historically, the British have been particularly sensitive about this issue. Following the demands of Prime Minister Cameron, five different issues have been tackled: “ever closer union”, subsidiarity, the role of the national parliaments, the British opt-out on matters relating to the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice and the issue of national security. They all have different scope and consequences that are analysed in detail."
