Accession to and withdrawal from the European Union may be considered simply as the obverse and reverse of the same coin. Yet the rules relating to these procedures are rather more different and are not a mirror image one to the other. On the one hand, the preconditions and processes for accession are longer established, based on a combination of Treaty Article, European Council conclusions and practice. On the other hand, withdrawal from the Union is an innovation of the Lisbon Treaty, neither tried nor tested. Analysis of both accession and withdrawal consider briefly the historical context of each process before continuing to look at the relevant Article of the Treaty on European Union, post Lisbon, including the criteria and procedure for each issue, as well as providing a short commentary on them.
