Could a ‘reverse Greenland’ arrangement keep Scotland and Northern Ireland in the EU?

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication


While no member state has ever left the European Union, Greenland opted to leave the EEC in 1985. Ulrik Pram Gad assesses what lessons the case of Greenland might have for the UK following its decision to leave the EU. He suggests that while the two situations are radically different, Greenland could serve as inspiration for a model in which Scotland, Northern Ireland and Gibraltar could retain membership of the EU while England and Wales pursue their own arrangements.
