Join our panel of experts and audiences from EU Centers across the US to engage in a discussion of the upcoming Scottish referendum on independence from Britain scheduled for September of this year and the possibility of a UK referendum on EU membership that could occur as early as 2016. How likely is Scottish independence? What would be the prospects of an independent Scotland in the European Union? How might the story be complicated by the specter of a British exit (aka "Brexit") from the EU? How likely is a British yes vote on exit and how might such a vote impact the EU going forward? Audience participation is welcomed in what promises to be a spirited discussion!
