Scotland’s Constitutional Future: Implications for Ireland and Northern Ireland

Scotland’s Constitutional Future

From a shared Celtic past, to their politically and economically developed present, there is much that links Scotland and Ireland. The cultural and historical ties between Scotland and Northern Ireland are particularly close. In the past 10 years, and recently accelerated by Brexit, discussion and debate around the UK’s constitutional future have intensified. In particular, questions arise as to the impact that Scottish constitutional change would have on its relationship with Ireland, and what the implications of any such change would be for Northern Ireland. In this panel discussion, leading politicians and academics from Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Ireland discuss the Scotland-Ireland relationship, and the likely implications of Scottish constitutional change for Northern Ireland.
