    Abstract

    Citizens of the UK voted to leave the EU, but voters in Scotland and Northern Ireland expressed a strong wish to remain. Taking a trade perspective, this chapter argues that resolving border issues will be central to finding a Brexit outcome that preserves the UK in its present form. Continued membership of the EEA -- with Scotland either a part of the same country or a fellow, independent member -- would be the best outcome for the UK.
