Call for Testimonies on the impact that the EU has had on the lives of people in Scotland
Have you studied or worked in another EU country? Are you from another EU country and have come to live in Scotland? Have you worked for one of the EU institutions? Have you participated in a project or course funded by the EU? Has an EU policy had a profound impact on your life?
The European and External Relations Committee (EERC) is calling on people living in Scotland to submit short testimonies either in a written or video format on the impact that the EU has had on their lives. This call is being made in the context of the Committee’s wider inquiry work on the implications of EU reform and the EU referendum for Scotland. The purpose is to develop an understanding of what EU membership means for people living in Scotland.
The Committee is interested in hearing from people who live in Scotland about the impact – positive or negative – that the EU has had on their lives at any point since the UK joined the European Economic Community in 1973. We would like to receive first-hand accounts from individuals that provide testimony to the significance of EU membership to Scotland.
How to submit a testimony
You are invited to send your testimony by 30 September 2015. You are asked to submit no more than 500 words or a two-minute video.
The Committee prefers to receive written submissions electronically and in a form accessible by MS Word. These should be sent to:
