Professor John Curtice Stevenson Trust Lecture

The Stevenson Trust for Citizenship presents a lecture by Professor John Curtice ( University of Strathclyde and Stevenson Honorary Fellow) on 'Has Devolution failed?'

‘Has Devolution Failed?’

For its unionist advocates, devolution was meant to provide Scotland with a substantial measure of 'home rule', while at the same time cementing its place in the Union.

Where does that ambition lie after the country's fifth election to its devolved Scottish Parliament? Is devolution providing Scots with an effective opportunity to voice their support for a distinctive public policy? And what might be the future of its relationship with the rest of the UK, especially following the upcoming EU referendum?

Date: Tuesday 10 May 
Sir Charles Wilson Lecture Theatre (corner of Gibson St and University Ave)

All are welcome.  No advance booking is necessary.
