We'd like to urge all of our followers and supporters to get behind the EMIS campaign with the same creativity, passion, and commitment that so many have shown with reference to euandme.
As the rolling damage caused by Brexit gathers pace and its impact more apparent, the focus has understandably, often been on the vast economic consequences. But the impact on our protections, rights and freedoms has been no less profound.
Leaving the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy was heralded as a key benefit of Brexit, and big promises to ‘level up’ neglected rural areas were made in its aftermath. So why, six years on, are farmers angry and countryside communities suffering?
When the people of Britain are faced with spiralling inflation, barren shelves, travel chaos and crumbling businesses, can we really keep pretending that it’s possible to “make Brexit work”?
Under a guise of ‘common sense’ in the face of ‘stifling political correctness’, a post-Brexit UK is forging a path away from the European Convention of Human Rights that not only erodes protections for the most vulnerable in our society, but also sets a dangerous precedent for other less democratic nations.
There’s been much discussion about how leaving the EU has impacted the lives of people living in the UK. But what about how this decision – one from which the British Overseas Territories were largely excluded - impacted the Territories and the 260,000 British nationals that call them home?
With the recent news of another independence referendum coming up in 2023, we would like to re-examine the possibility - as well as the barriers - that exist for an independent Scotland rejoining the EU. Our goal is not to suggest independence as a catch-all solution to Scotland’s problems. However, it is true that voting for an independent Scotland is our best chance of once again enjoying...
The infamous claim made by the Leave campaign that £350 million a week could be freed up to spend towards the NHS if we left the EU was immediately identified as erroneous and misleading. Sadly, misinformation has a penchant for spreading like wildfire; certified facts, due to their diligence, take longer to proliferate. Now, two years on from the UK’s official departure from the EU, we...
The push for tougher immigration laws was of great appeal to many Leave voters, who felt that EU nationals were taking jobs from UK citizens and driving down wages. In fact, EU and non-EU nationals alike are a huge boon to our economy: they contribute by spending, and they pay more in taxes than they take out in benefits. Meanwhile, the primary driver behind economic crises, inflation, the...
The past few years have been a turbulent and difficult time for businesses, with the dual blows of the pandemic and Brexit causing disruptions in supply chains, increased paperwork and wait times, and an increase in costs to export to and import from the EU.
Leaving the EU has caused immense disruption to food imports, causing food prices - and concerns about food safety - to rise.
Included in this blog are just a few select examples of projects that have been funded by the EU in Edinburgh
With a focus on social inclusion, EU funding helped provide opportunities in one of Scotland’s most disparate cities in terms of equality.
What is the protocol and what is happening?
As we’ve seen over the past few weeks, EU funding has had an immense impact in Scotland, from the big centres of academic research to the remotest areas of natural conservation. The question remains: what will replace this funding? Below is an examination of the replacement presented by the UK government as well as our own asks of what needs to be taken into account going forward.
We are delighted to be joined by Jenni to discuss the impact of Brexit on industry, tourism and infrastructure.
Continuing with this series of blogs, we’re going to examine the magnitude of support Scotland has received across its various sectors. This week we are looking at the sector of culture and community.
EU funds have been vital in sustaining and improving tourist services and travel infrastructure in Scotland, as well as ensuring that tourist projects are sustainable, informative, ecologically responsible, accessible, and safe.
EU funds were vital to Scotland’s development going back decades, with the stimulation of new businesses, job opportunities, innovation through research, as well as significant investment in infrastructure which made communities in Scotland better places to live, work, visit, study, or do business.
Over the next month or so eu+me is turning its attention to the role of EU support that we've enjoyed and the difference that it's made.
