Scotland's Choices: What Does 'No' Mean?

Start: Oct 16, 2013 1:00:00 PM
End: Oct 16, 2013 2:00:00 PM

In about  a year’s time Scotland's voters  will make a decision on independence. If  today's  polls are to be believed, they are likely to vote 'No'.  But what would that mean in practice? We already know the status quo is not an option. The Scottish Parliament's powers will be extended in 2016. But all the major parties  are looking at the possibilities of more devolution still. This seminar will look at the options, the constraints, and the implications for the rest of the UK Jim Gallagher is Gwilym Gibbon fellow at Nuffield College Oxford, and a former Director General for devolution in Whitehall. He was Secretary of the Calman Commission on Scottish Devolution, and advises, amongst others, the Labour Party's devolution commission.  With Iain Maclean and Guy Lodge he is the author of Scotland's Choices  (Edinburgh University Press, 2013),  which  sets out the options and the arguments facing the Scottish people.

matt matravers
Matt Matravers (BSc (Econ), PhD, London School of Economics and Political Science, University of London) works on contemporary political and legal philosophy. He is particularly interested in three things: first, the relationship between theories of distributive justice (who gets what) and theories of retributive justice (accounts of the justifiability of punishment). This interest underpins his book, Justice and Punishment. Second, the idea of responsibility (again, in both distributive and retributive justice) and whether we can ever legitimately be held responsible for anything. This interest underpins a number of papers on the so-called ‘Equality of What?’ problem, and his recent book, Responsibility and Justice. Third, the problem of ‘dangerousness’, with particular reference to severely personality disordered people.

Matt is a co-editor of Criminal Law and Philosophy.
