Invitation only policy roundtable co-hosted by the UCL European Institute and the Scottish Centre on European Relations.

This roundtable explores  how smaller EU member states influence and develop their strategic priorities and what Scotland, after Brexit, can learn from these smaller states. The discussion will also consider Scotland's current European strategy and future choices.

The event is held under the Chatham House rule. It addresses a high-level policy audience including politicians, officials, diplomats, academics and media, business or civil society representatives.


Expected audience: up to around 30 policy officials, practitioners, analysts; diplomats; think tankers; NGOs; academics.

This event is part of a joint project between the Scottish Centre on European Relations and the UCL European Institute, in the context of our Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence Programme 2019-2022, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission.
