On Thursday 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom moved into uncharted territory after 17.4 million voters chose to leave the European Union. Leading cross-party ‘Brexiters’ became the protagonists... of the event in a systemic shift in Global politics, with those dubbed ‘Remainers’ having to capitulate at the somewhat unexpected result. There is still little clarity on how the negotiations will affect individual nations of the United Kingdom, in what’s been called the most complicated political discussions since World War II. Analysis of the results showed that although the country chose to leave, there was a split in opinion of nation-states. England and Wales voted for withdrawal from the European Union, while Northern Ireland and Scotland favoured remaining; 56% to 44% and 62% to 38% respectively. As the media coverage of Brexit has predominantly focused on the nation as a whole, we asked leading experts from Scotland to analyse the impact on the country.
