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

8 December 2021, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

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.

Join us for a webinar to debate 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).
