Horst Eidenmueller has written a paper analysing the possible negotiating strategies of the UK, the EU institutions and the Member States in the upcoming Brexit negotiations. It explains how the parties appear to approach the immensely complex negotiations intuitively as a zero-sum or even negative-sum game, engaging only in value claiming tactics.  Against this background, he argues in favour of an alternative international, tailor-made mediation process as a means to efficiently steer the withdrawal negotiations and help the parties agree on a value-preserving ‘withdrawal agreement’.
