Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2016
According the Scottish referendum 2014, the Scots voted to stay as part of the United Kingdom, rejecting independence by a majority. However, there was a record turnout, that's why debates on Scottish independence have not stopped. Moreover, Scottish National Party, which is standing at the head of the independence movement, plans to continue defending the independence and ensure the right to host the second Scottish referendum. This is an added incentive to activate the debates on the Scotland’s future among Scottish parties, which hold contrasting views on the phenomenon of Scottish separatism. However, there is no direct correlation between the acceptance or denial separatism and ideological affiliation Scottish political parties. Therefore, the aim of this research is to uncover the phenomenon of Scottish separatism through the prism of party-political perspective.
