This article is the editorial introduction to the Special Issue of Scottish Affairs on Scotland and Brexit: Citizenship, Identity and Belonging. Here we outline the key themes and concerns of the Special Issue and contextualise the various contributions that follow. In particular we focus on issues of rights, identity, representation and entitlement in the context of growing social divisions and shifting boundaries of citizenship. We consider, too, Scotland as a distinctive part of the Brexit discourse, and explore the past, present and future of Scotland in a changing UK and EU.
