The authoritative source for independent research on UK-EU relations

09 Oct 2022

12:30 pm to 1:30 pm



As attention turns towards a future independence referendum – and against the backdrop of the Brexit experience – a key aspect of any debate will inevitably turn towards the potential border arrangements of an independent Scotland. Not only would Brexit shape and influence an independent Scotland’s relationship with the EU, as it inevitably sought membership, it would have a profound impact on an independent Scotland’s relationship with the remainder UK – particularly one that found itself on opposite ends of EU membership.

While the ramifications of the UK’s border arrangements with the EU, post-Brexit, continue to play out on an almost daily basis this event will consider how Scotland can learn from the experience and the type of relationship it should aspire to across all areas of policy – from trade to migration, social protection to education – with the UK and EU.
