ScotRes – launching 30 May 2017

Launch of London-based research forum to explore themes around Scottish independence

I am excited to announce the launch of ScotRes, a new London-based research forum to explore themes around Scottish independence, on 30 May 2017.

On 28 March 2017, a majority in the Scottish Parliament voted in support of a second independence referendum – the question is no longer ‘if’ but ‘when’ the referendum will take place.

Research will underpin the arguments put forward by both sides. I hope that ScotRes will provide a space for London-based researchers, who support Scottish independence, to share and develop their work ahead of the next referendum.

ScotRes will focus on one theme each month and open with a short talk from one or more researchers on that subject. This will be followed by chaired questions and informal discussion.
