On 23 June 2016, a referendum was held in the UK on membership of the European Union – the overall result of which was of course a 52-48% decision to leave the EU. The outcome was close and not consistent across the different parts of the UK, with Scotland in particular voting 62-38% for the UK to remain in the EU. In the aftermath of the referendum, politics in the UK have become increasingly unpredictable and consumed by Brexit. The Article 50 process was triggered, a EU-UK joint report agreed and a draft withdrawal treaty published, but the unfolding saga has been marked by persistent uncertainty and confusion. In Scotland, Brexit has become intertwined with the debates on independence and on devolution within the UK. Around the second anniversary of the EU referendum, join us as we reflect on the extraordinary political developments of the past two years and consider the prospects for the Brexit withdrawal agreement, transition and future EU-UK relationship.
