Venue: Centenary Gallery, Parkinson Building
Join us and colleagues from the School of Politics and International Studies at Leeds for a day of lively debate and discussion about the Scottish Referendum. We aim to give you a flavour of the debate that is taking place in Scotland and an opportunity to think about its implications for Britain and this region in particular.
- Our guest speaker Professor James Mitchell, Chair of Public Policy at the University of Edinburgh, will discuss the potential impact of a ‘Yes’ vote for the UK
- Dr David Seawright and Dr Stuart McAnulla will reflect on the changing relationship between Scotland and England
- Susan Dalgety and Lindsey Fraser will consider how the referendum campaign has progressed so far
- Dr Dan Coffey and Dr Iain Clacher will debate the economic case for and against independence
The day will conclude with what we expect to be a lively ‘Question Time’ session, chaired by Emeritus Professor of Politics David Bell and featuring a panel that will represent a wide range of opinion about independence.
*Refreshments and a light lunch will be available* Entry is FREE but we do ask participants to register in advance – for details please visit the Spring into Summer webpage.
