Nationalism is an important aspect of state interaction in order to achieve their objectives in the international system. However, nationalist activities displayed by states as members of international organizations hinder the accomplishment of the objectives of such institutions. Britain‟s exit from the European Union triggered a new wave of nationalist activities across Europe as the existence of the EU community was called to question. This paper investigates the impact of Britain‟s exit on the survival of the European Union as well as the extent to which BREXIT affects cooperation within the community Using secondary sources of data, the study relied on historical research design and utilised the technique of textual analysis of data. The findings reveal that as member states of the European Union display nationalism, a shift in focus may result and attaining the objectives of EU can become quite herculean. The study made recommendations to sustain and possibly improve relationship between the United Kingdom and European Union as well as enhance cooperation among EU member-states.
