Is Scotland different on race and migration?

Alistair Hunter, Nasar Meer

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


This short article reports on a symposium at the University of Edinburgh entitled ‘Is Scotland Different on Race and Migration’. The event brought together the latest research to consider whether Scotland really is different from neighbouring countries. Questions under discussion included, but were not limited to, what does the data tell us on mass Scottish attitudes? Is ‘Scottishness’ more inclusive then ‘Englishness’? Where do migrants and racial minorities fit into this story and who is narrating it? What are Scotland’s policy options in light of it?
