Scotland in Europe Post-Brexit

About Scotland in Europe Post-Brexit

The Faculty of Advocates will host an important one day seminar in Parliament Hall on Friday 20th March 2020 discussing Scotland’s future in Europe. The primary focus will be on whether and if so on what terms Scotland could become an Independent Member of the EU.

Location: Parliament Hall, Parliament House, Edinburgh EH1 1RF

There will be three sessions each containing contributions from distinguished experts followed by a moderated discussion with questions to the speakers and contributions from the floor.

The speakers include:

Professor Catherine Barnard, Professor of European Union and Labour Law at Trinity College Cambridge,
Dame Mariot Leslie, Chatham House,
Dr Kirsty Hughes, Director of the Scottish Centre on European Relations,
Professor Andrew Scott, Professor of European Union Studies at Edinburgh University,

The event will close with a fourth session comprising a panel discussion with invited representatives from the Scottish political parties. This will be chaired by the highly respected journalist Allan Little.

The object of the exercise is to inform the public about the realistic prospects for Scotland’s future.

The topics to be discussed will include:

The Rules:

• The criteria for EU membership.

• Input from EU institutions/member states to application process.

• Individual issues such as currency, budget deficit.

• Membership of the Council of Europe.

• Timescale.

Conditions in a Tailor-Made Accession:

• Which conditions are likely to be particularly significant?

• How much guidance can be provided by previous or current applications?

• How would the specific conditions be influenced by post-independence arrangements between Scotland and UK?

• Could Scotland remain in the EU without leaving the UK?

• Timescale.

The Politics:

• Who would be calling the shots in the EU institutions and the member states? Are there likely supporters or opponents?

• The experience of other previous applicants.

• The relevance of other current applications: would Scotland be in a queue?

• What difference do our history of membership and our 2016 referendum result make?

• Timescale.

Registration will be from 9.30am with Tea & Coffee. Light lunch will be provided, and the event will be followed by a networking drinks reception.
