While de Gaulle has been comprehensively studied on the EU level, this is-to a large degree-not the case for his influence on the British involvement in the European integration process. As this influence will cease to apply once the UK is no longer a member of the Union, the Brexit will cause essential challenges for the British, especially for the rural areas and for the EU-British future relations. This research points out the main contributions of de Gaulle to the European integration process and their impact on the European-British relations from an historical perspective that can help both areas to improve their future relations as probably international partners.
