Professor Nicola McEwen, Chair of Territorial Politics will deliver her Inaugural Lecture "Independence and Interdependence: The Dynamics of Scottish Self-Government" on Wednesday, 11 February 2015.

The Scottish independence referendum may have resulted in a No vote, but it has reignited debates over Scottish self-government. Nicola McEwen's lecture will put these debates in context. She will explore the meaning of independence and interdependence, examine the interdependencies that would remain irrespective of the constitutional settlement, and consider the implications of the ongoing process of constitutional reform for Scotland and the UK. Taking a broader view of the Scottish-UK relationship, she will identify the dynamics that generate dissatisfaction with the constitutional status quo and transform territorial distinctiveness into a demand for greater self-government.

This lecture is open to the public
