Since the establishment of the ECSC (European Coal and Steel Community in 1951) to the
present day, the European Union has not faced such a situation, leaving a Member State in the
European sphere, which is why Brexit is a new phenomenon. I can say that it is a new project, and we
can see that it is a new process, that of disintegration, in which a state no longer wants to be part of
the EU, on the contrary, it wants to leave the European circle. It is intended to be ordered by various
separation provisions in order to prevent disruption and to provide legal certainty to the citizens of the
European Union and the United Kingdom.
