Prof. Lazar Koprinarov, political scientist and philosopher:
Brexit has shown one thing - integration should not be taken for granted, and efforts to that end must be made every single day and on all levels
Undoubtedly, the Brexit negotiations will be hard and traumatic for both the EU and the UK. Brexit has delivered the EU a serious blow but it will not result in the bloc falling apart. The day that Sir Ivan Rogers submitted the UK’s official request to leave the Union will be remembered as a “dark day” in the history of the European integration.
