Abstract

Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has indicated that she intends to explore options to protect Scottish membership of the European Union following the UK’s referendum on 23 June.

Jo Murkens writes that if either Scotland or Northern Ireland rejects leaving the European Union, the UK as a whole cannot proceed with Brexit negotiations in any constitutionally plausible way.
