Referendums are like buses

The Stevenson Trust for Citizenship presents a lecture by Dr Robert Johns on 5 May.

The Stevenson Trust for Citizenship presents a lecture by Dr Robert Johns (Reader in Politics, University of Essex) on ‘Referendums are like buses…:  Scotland 2014, EU 2016 and beyond’


The upcoming Holyrood election will take place in the long shadow of one referendum,  with another just around the corner – and possibly a third if the Scots are outvoted in a 'Brexit' vote.  

Dr Johns - author of several books on Scottish politics and STV's election-night psephologist -  will assess the reshaping of electoral politics following 2014, the state of Scottish opinion ahead of the EU referendum and where all this will leave Scotland following 5 May.

Tuesday 5 April at 6 p.m.
Sir Charles Wilson Lecture Theatre (Corner of Gibson Street and University Avenue)

All staff, students, and members of the public are welcome.  No advance booking is necessary.
