On 29 March 2017, the United Kingdom notified the European Council of its intention to leave the European Union, in accordance with Article 50 of the treaty on European Union. Since then, both sides have been locked into negotiations to prepare the text of a withdrawal agreement and to outline their vision of a future relationship.
Both the EU and the UK have published a series of papers outlining how they envisage their relationship post-Brexit.
