‘To fear or not to fear?’ The nature of the EU-27 countries’ vulnerability to Brexit

Katarzyna Mroczek-Dąbrowska , Anna Matysek-Jędrych


The aim of the article is to analyse consequences of the British voters’ decision to withdraw from the European Union through the lens of a disintegration process by measuring the degree and the nature of vulnerability of the individual EU-27 countries. It demonstrates an economic and spatial approach to the critical assessment of Brexit, with focus on identifying the nature of individual countries vulnerability. In this way, we contribute to the ongoing debate on the Brexit negotiation process by providing strong arguments in favour of certain policy decision. In line with the ‘neighbor country’ and ‘small country’ hypotheses, we assume that closely located economies and small European economies will experience moderate to high negative consequences of Brexit, while larger ones will not be affected as much.
