This is a particularly well thought through article on "what happens now" after the Dutch referendum (albeit written before it took place)

http://verfassungsblog.de/what-will-happen-if-the-dutch-vote-no-in-the-referendum-on-the-eu-ukraine-association-agreement/?utm_content=bufferc34d1&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Although to be honest, those that wanted reform and to build a rule of law, democratic State before the referendum still want a rule of law, democratic State.  Little has changed in that regard.

The biggest concern is that the political class are allowed to become inward looking, for that will make things far more difficult regarding reform.

Well we all know this vote was not against Ukraine but against EU and it is a pity that anti EU campaigners have succeeded in (ab)using voters to drag into this negative anti EU thinking. None of which is true ... Think about this anti EU and BREXIT clown Boris Johnson who is nothing but a populist. All his so called prove for ridiculous EU legislation and rulings is nothing more than hot air ... http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/mar/23/very-interesting-boris-johnson-brexit-treasury-select-committee
