Should We Re-Join the Single Market and/or Customs Union?

The prospects for Scotland and/or the UK re-joining the EU in the near future are receding – at least for the moment despite the daily revelations about the damage wrought by Brexit.

So, the idea has arisen that Scotland/the UK should re-join the single market and/or Customs Union – perhaps as a staging post or perhaps as an end in itself. But others believe we should opt for nothing less than full EU membership.

Our webinar debates the merits of these positions.

Speakers:
  • Philippa Whitford MP, SNP Commons spokesman on Europe (and health);
  • David Broucher, a former UK diplomat/ambassador in, among other places, Bonn and Prague;
  • Peter Sellar, an EU lawyer specialising in regulatory affairs and author of a paper on this topic for the Scottish Independence Convention.

Chair:
Vanessa Glynn, a former senior civil servant and an EMiS executive committee member (and former chair).
