ABSTRACT: Based on the Lisbon Treaty Article 50 / Treaty of European Union (TEU), the United Kingdom implemented a referendum on July 23, 2016, called Brexit, to decide whether to leave or stay in the EU. The fact that the referendum has resulted in separation has led to a concentration of negative expectations for the future of the EU. In fact, this development can be perceived as a consequence of the rejection of the EU Constitution referendums in France and the Netherlands in 2005. Besides failing to work out the 2005 EU Constitutional crisis, Europe’s facing 2008 global crisis and debt crisis, and its failure to manage this process all have increased the pessimism about the future of EU citizens and has revived the return of EU citizenship to nation citizenship. This can be labelled as "cultural fragmentation". The purpose of this study comprises whether the process beginning with Brexit and developed within this milieu will have a dominion effect among other countries in EU.
