Scotland and Secessionist Movements: The Political Process

We have some great content lined up in this series including an interview with Professor David McCrone , co-director of the Institute of Governance at Edinburgh University, and a piece from Professor Daniele Conversi , Research Professor at the University of the Basque Country and the Ikerbasque Foundation for Science. The pieces will take us from the particular topic that is Scottish nationalism to the wider question of secessionist politics.

In the meantime, we have prepared a short infographic which will guide you through the political history of Scotland’s entry into the United Kingdom and the contentious status of that Union.
