Speakers: Prof Cathy Gormley-Heenan, Prof Ailsa Henderson & Prof Roger Scully 

On 5 May voters go to the polls for the devolved assembly elections in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  The next five years will be critical for devolution and the future of the Union, with devolution of significant tax powers to Scotland, further powers for Wales, and the promise of a fresh start in Northern Ireland.  Much will depend on the new assemblies and the governments they elect.  A panel of three distinguished electoral and political experts will discuss the implications for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and for the rest of the UK.
