L’Europe dans le débat constitutionnel écossais

Abstract : Since the pro-independence SNP gained its first seats in the House of Commons in the late 1960s, there have been constitutional debates in Scotland, first over devolution then over independence. Scotland’s relationship with the EEC/EU was always part of these discussions. These matters were supposedly settled with the creation of the Scottish Parliament in 1999 and its subsequent additional powers granted in 2016, as well as the 2014 referendum on independence. Yet the outcome of the 2016 referendum on Brexit has generated further debates about the best way to protect Scotland’s place in Europe, through a strengthened devolution settlement or through independence.
