Event Details

Kevin Hague, Chair of These Islands, will speak on the nature of unions (including the EU and the UK), the economic and moral arguments for them, and what pooling and sharing means for Scotland.

These Islands is a forum for debate that stands unabashedly for the view that more unites the people of the United Kingdom than divides them. More information can be found at:

These Islands is keen to engage with a diverse range of opinions, and the Rector’s Committee¬†hopes that people on both sides of the Scottish independence question will find this talk of interest.

The discussion is taking place in School II.
