Abstract

There is debate over whether, and to what extent, the Isle of Man should be integrated in the European Union. That debate ebbs and flows here, as it does in Member States, notably still in the United Kingdom. However, alongside that debate there is also continuing consideration in those states of how they can best institutionally relate to the EU. That consideration remains curiously lacking in important quarters in the Isle of Man, and it is that lack which may represent 'missed opportunities'.
