Referendums and Constitutional Change - Quebec and Scotland in Focus

Centre colleagues were directly involved in a two-day international workshop that brought together colleagues from Quebec and Scotland.

Organized by Professor Stephen Tierney (Centre for Constitutional Law) and Professor Alain-G. Gagnon (UQAM), the workshop brought together 40 academics and government practitioners.

The workshop reflected on the Quebec/Canada experience and the lessons this might hold for the Scottish process. It also examined how the evolving picture within Scotland offers insights for constitutional referendums at the sub-state level in other plurinational states.

The Foundation for Canadian Studies co-sponsored this event through the Centre of Canadian Studies.
