Ask an Expert: Article 50

In a special series, we’ll be gathering together a team of experts from the Centre on Constitutional Change and beyond to answer your questions about Article 50, the High Court ruling, and what happens next.

The Supreme Court will begin hearing the Article 50 (Miller and Others) case on Monday, 5 December. What does this mean for the Brexit process and for the constituent nations of the United Kingdom?

On our blog, Tobias Lock shares his thoughts on the implication of the High Court’s original judgement and Kirsty Hughes argues that the judgement brings representative democracy and real politics back into the Brexit process. Writing for Verfassungsblog, Jo Murkens discusses constitutional consequences of the judgement, describing the ruling as a ‘proper drubbing for the government’. Meanwhile, at LSE British Politics and Policy, Sara Hagemannn assesses Parliament’s role in Brexit. At the UK in a Changing Europe, Richard Rose asks if a delay in triggering Brexit could be counterproductive and Jo Hunt assesses the High Court ruling. At The Conversation, Gavin Phillipson analyses the media coverage of the ruling.

Share your questions about this process in the comments below or on Twitter using the hashtag #askanexpert and our team of experts will endeavour to answer them.
