The UK in a Changing Europe promotes rigorous, high-quality and independent research into the complex and ever changing relationship between the UK and the European Union (EU).

It provides an authoritative, non-partisan and impartial reference point for those looking for information, insights and analysis about UK-EU relations that stands aside from the politics surrounding the debate.

The Initiative’s work is tailored to be easily accessible to policy makers, businesses, journalists, civil society organisations, educational institutions and the general public who are interested in the UK’s relationship with the EU.

It is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and based at King’s College London.One part of the UK and EU’s transition deal agreed on the 19 March 2018 that caused controversy in the United Kingdom was over fishing rights and access to UK waters for EU vessels. UK and EU negotiators had agreed that the UK would effectively remain part of the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy, yet without a direct say in its rules, until 2021.
