Abstract:This thesis explores how the Brexit process is being governed by the European Union. Embedded in the Governance of Discontinuation research it investigates the EU’s strategy and practise for organising the negotiation and policy process and its flexible adaption to specific key moments. The interpretive approach employed for this research uses a chronological method to reconstruct the Brexit negotiation timeline and the contingency policy process. It applies the Multiple-Streams heuristic from Kingdon (2009) for an in-depth understanding of four characteristic situations of the Brexit process. The qualitative data for the analysis is collected from official EU documents and legal acts and press releases based on theoretical sampling. The research finds a twofold EU’s strategy of framing and structuring the Brexit process while simultaneously leaving the scope for implementing flexible practices in situations where this is required. The Brexit process is further marked by policy problems and different types of uncertainty. The double strategy of certainty and uncertainty is determined as influential for governing the Brexit process. Keywords: EU, Brexit, governing discontinuation, policy process, Multiple-Streams, uncertainty as a strategy
