Meet the Team running the Project


Nikos Skoutaris

Nikos is the Principal Investigator of the project. He is a Lecturer in EU Law at the University of East Anglia. He obtained his LLB from the University of Aberdeen, his LLM from Maastricht University and his PhD from the European University Institute. His research interests lie in the intersection between EU law, comparative constitutional law and conflict resolution theory. He has published extensively on Brexit and its effect on the UK territorial constitution.

His most recent paper discusses how Scotland and N Ireland could remain in the single market even after Brexit. The paper has been widely sited by academics and discussed by the media in the UK (The National, 16 July 2016; The Scotsman, 18 July 2016; BBC, 23 July 2016; The National, 14 November 2017; Irish News14 November 2017) and abroad. Spiegel Online presented it in a front page article. 

Recently, the GUE/NGL Parliamentary Group of the European Parliament has asked him to author a policy brief on how Northern Ireland can achieve a special status within the EU after Brexit. At the same time, Nikos works as an adviser to the Scottish Parliament on Brexit-related issues.
