Just a reminder: the European Parliament has so far commissioned from experts dozens of impact assessments or studies on #Brexit in 14 broad fields. They don't necessarily constitute the EP's official position but are all free & available here: europarl.europa.eu/unitedkingdom/… Thread 1/6
They include studies on the areas in which the European Parliament has set red lines for its approval of any Article 50 deal, such as #citizensrights europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… & the effect of #Brexit on the #peaceprocess in Northern Ireland europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… 2/6
The studies on #Brexit also cover other critical topics such as the internal market and #consumerprotection europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… and #financialservices europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes… 3/6
