Scottish Social Attitudes 2014 - The Independence Referendum Campaign: Help or Hindrance?
Scheduled with just over a month to go to the referendum on Scottish independence ScotCen Social Research, WhatScotlandThinks, and AQMeN hosted a one-off, free conference looking at how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ the referendum campaign has been (so far) and what this could mean for the future of Scotland
Chaired by BBC Scotland’s Gordon Brewer and incorporated into the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, highlights from the conference included results from the latest Scottish Social Attitudes survey, a panel debate featuring some of Scotland’s top political journalists and talks from leading experts on some of the key issues in the debate on Scottish independence.
