The Scottish Referendum: What Happens After?

Lecture on the Scottish referendum and what happens after it by Professor Alan Trench in the Connor Lecture Theatre, University of Ulster Belfast Campus

September's referendum on Scottish independence will have far-reaching implications no matter what the result. A Yes vote will not just lead to negotiations for Scotland to become a separate state, but further changes to institutions and public policies in the remaining parts of the UK. A No vote will lead to further devolution for Scotland, with implications for Wales and Northern Ireland, including a possible constitutional convention. This lecture will examine what happens in either case, and particularly what it might mean for Northern Ireland.

Alan Trench is Professor of Politics, School of Criminology, Politics and Social Policy, University of Ulster, and one of the UK’s leading authorities of devolution. He is an Honorary Fellow, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh ; an Honorary senior research associate, The Constitution Unit, University College London; a Specialist adviser, House of Commons Welsh Affairs Committee; and the author of the 'Devolution Matters' blog: http://devolutionmatters.wordpress.com/
