dc.description.abstract This paper will investigate the causes that led David Cameron to declare the Brexit referendum in the year 2013. Given the nature of Brexit results in 2016, there has emerged a vacuum of knowledge regarding political causes that triggered Cameron to declare the referendum in 2013. The paper will utilize deductive positivist methodology and employ Process Tracing as a method to investigate the answer to the research question. This paper will formulate and test five different hypothetical conjectures. The study is significant in the field of World Politics as it will act as a reference to future studies in the field of EU integration and leadership decisions. en
