Volume I, Issue IV, 2018
The separation of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU) famously known as the ‘BEXIT’ is very possibly going to have a significant impact on the environmental situation in the UK mostly because most of the UK governance w.r.t the environment stem from the EU treaties and policies. This research paper aims to study the Impact Brexit can and will possibly have on the Environment and how the UK may potentially deal with the issues related to environment protection the law of which stem from the EU which UK is a member of till Brexit actually happens. In conclusion the researcher finds that leaving the EU will not do away with the need for pooling its’ sovereignty at an international level to ensure that Brexit does not end up having an adverse effect on environment. I.e. UK will have to seek of international assistance in order to maintain the standards of environment protection as is held by it now.
