The Scottish Constitutional Futures Forum is an initiative of academics from five Scottish Law Schools: those of the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Strathclyde. The idea was developed following two seminars on Scotland’s constitutional future which took place at the Universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh in January and March 2012. These events highlighted the need for a forum which would encourage rational and non-partisan discussion of Scotland’s constitutional future, particularly the legal issues around independence and further devolution. We think that there is an important contribution that universities can and should make to promoting wider public understanding of the issues.
The founding members of the SCFF are:
Professor Paul Beaumont, University of Aberdeen
Professor Christine Bell, University of Edinburgh
Professor Aileen McHarg, University of Strathclyde
Professor Tom Mullen, University of Glasgow
Professor Alan Page, University of Dundee
Professor Stephen Tierney, University of Edinburgh
Professor Neil Walker, University of Edinburgh
The SCFF is intended to be open and inclusive. We welcome participation in our activities from anyone who is interested in Scotland’s constitutional future and willing to engage with the subject in the spirit of promoting public understanding.
