Gerry Hassan & Michael Keating
Mon 21 Aug 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Bosco Theatre (George Street)
The Evolution of Devolution
For decades, Scotland has been consumed by political debate about self-government and its relationship with the other UK nations: an argument that was not resolved by the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum. Michael Keating, editor of A Wealthier, Fairer Scotland, argues that self-government is not just about formal constitutional powers but about the capacity to address key social and economic problems. Drawing from Scotland the Bold and the recently published A Nation Changed? The SNP and Scotland Ten Years On, Gerry Hassan argues that the Scottish debate has to be situated in a wider canvas: namely the crises of British politics, globalisation, and the increasing concentrations of power and wealth across the world. Join the authors for the discussion, chaired by Richard Holloway.
