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.

  • 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.
