Is Scotland different on matters of race and migration?, (co-sponsored)

Speakers: Nasar Meer, Emma Hill, Ross Bond, Alistair Hunter (University of Edinburgh); Charles Leddy Owen (University of Portsmouth); Sarah Kyambi.

This public event brought together the latest research from leading experts to consider whether Scotland really is different from neighbouring countries on matters of race and migration, as is often assumed.

What does the data tell us on mass Scottish attitudes? Is ‘Scottishness’ more inclusive then ‘Englishness’? Where do migrants and racial minorities fit into this story and who is narrating it?  On these issues how does Scotland compare?
