Assesses the democratic merits of the Scottish independence referendum of 18 September 2014 and the lessons it offers for future referendum initiatives. Considers how two criticisms levelled at referendums in general, that they are vulnerable to elite control and tend to aggregate pre-formed opinions instead of promoting meaningful deliberation, apply to the Scottish referendum. Discusses how it compares with other UK referendums.
