Abstract: This article examines the various legal aspects involved in Scotland’s independence, focusing on the legal implications for other European regions. Essentially the results of this analysis might also provide useful guidance for other regions in Europe contemplating independence, such as Catalonia or Flanders. In order to offer an overview of the questions that may arise, membership of international organizations and succession of states are taken into account. This paper will then turn to the EU law aspects of Scottish independence; in particular it will address the question of how Scotland’s independence would affect its status vis-à-vis the EU.
