The European Union is made up of 27 states.

It was a “tortuous road”, a “fierce” negotiation, as its protagonists said, but finally the United Kingdom and the European Union reached a historic agreement to avoid a hard Brexit.

Here we present a quick guide with eight keys to understand the scope of what was agreed this Thursday.

1. The EU and Brexit

The European Union is made up of 27 states following the UK’s decision to become the first country to leave the bloc.

That decision was taken in a referendum organized in 2016, in which 52% of voters opted for separation from the EU, which became known as Brexit.
