Description

The Scottish Government is holding a referendum on 18 September 2014 asking “Should Scotland be an independent country?” The UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has initiated a Future of the UK and Scotland programme of activities bringing the best of UK social science to the debate about Scotland’s constitutional future and its implications for the rest of the UK and Europe. This work aims to both inform the debate in the run-up to the referendum and assist in planning across a wide range of areas which will be affected by the outcome of the vote - whether for Scottish independence or continued Union. This meeting offered an overview of the programme of work and focused on the key areas of migration and business, on questions about Scotland and the UK’s future membership of the EU as the Scottish referendum - and potentially a UK referendum on EU membership - approach.
