The 2014 Scottish Referendum: Democracy and the Future of the United Kingdom

Adlai Stevenson Center on Democracy
In September, 2014 nearly 85 percent of eligible voters in Scotland turned out for a referendum on their country's proposed independence from the United Kingdom. The measure failed with 55 percent of the people casting "NO" votes, but the process is expected to lead to more power for the Scottish Parliament and possible other reforms in the U.K. DePaul University Professor Euan Hague, a native of Edinburgh, Scotland will discuss the implications of that vote as the countries move forward.
