Adèle Aubry's curator insight, December 3, 2016 1:13 PM
L'article souligne que même si économiquement, tous les pays de l'Union Européenne devraient favoriser des  traités avec le Royaume-Uni malgré le Brexit, les enjeux politiques prendront le pas sur les raisons économiques. L'un des exemples pris est celui de la France : la classe politique française n'a aucun intérêt à faire du Brexit une réussite économique parce que cela la desservira aux présidentielles de 2017 en renforçant le programme du Front National.

Truth is the first casualty of EU referendum, experts say | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

"Both sides in the Brexit battle are playing fast and loose with the truth, fact-checkers have warned. The Leave and Remain camps vying for the upper hand"

Following the publication of the report Leave/remain: the facts behing the claims, (in collaboration with Full Fact,) Professor Anand Menon, UK in a Changing Europe director, said: "The public is being bombarded with conflicting claims about the costs and benefits of EU membership. Many of these are at best unsupported by evidence, and at worse simply untrue. Unsurprisingly, many people do not know what to believe or who to trust."
