Optional Fields
Until the Brexit vote in 2016, Scotland’s relations with the island of Ireland (i.e. both Ireland and Northern Ireland) took place in the context of the UK and Ireland being member states of the European Union. Ireland looked to its relations, North‐South and East‐West, in that EU context; in the East‐West case both to the UK as a whole but also to its constituent parts, notably Scotland and Wales. In this article, we explore the implications of this patchwork and differentiated set of relationships that Brexit has super‐imposed on pre‐existing relations, focusing on Scotland’s relationship to Ireland, and their different relationships to the EU. We also consider how different constitutional scenarios could impact in future on these relations.In this article, we explore the implications of this patchwork and differentiated set of relationships that Brexit has super‐imposed on pre‐existing relations, focusing on Scotland’s relationship to Ireland, and their different relationships to the EU.
