Ireland shows what independence in Europe could look like. A small country, respected on the global stage, speaking with its own voice while being supported by other EU member states. But Brexit has severe implications for Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, and there is no sign of progress being made by Westminster. Join Senator Neale Richmond, Chair of the Irish Seanad Brexit Committee, Dr Kirsty Hughes, Director of SCER, and Alyn Smith MEP as they discuss common Irish and Scottish concerns on Brexit.

Co-organised with Alyn Smith MEP

The Scottish Centre on European Relations is an independent EU think tank based in Edinburgh
