The Stevenson Trust held a panel discussion with the ESRC-funded Scottish Election Study (SES) Team on 10 May, marking the launch of the SES 2021 Scottish Parliament Election Report. Dr Fraser McMillan presented research examining affective political polarisation in Scotland making use of the 2021 and 2022 Scottish Opinion Monitor (SCOOP) surveys. This was one of several events in the SES “bonanza week”, which also saw the release of the 2021 Scottish Election survey data, the 2021 & 2022 SCOOP survey data and the inaugural Scottish Election Study lecture delivered at the Royal Scottish of Edinburgh. The 2021 Election Report as well as the underlying data can be downloaded here:
