Annual Lecture

The SES invites an external speaker to shed light on Scottish electoral politics, voting and governance in May each year. The series started in 2022 when we hosted former SES Principal Investigator Prof. James Mitchell (University of Edinburgh) for a talk on radicalism in Scotland and continued in 2023 when we welcomed Prof. Maria Sobolewska (University of Manchester) on ethnic minority politics in Scotland compared to the rest of the UK.

Videos of past and future annual lectures can be found on this page.

2022 – Prof. James Mitchell, “How Radical is Scotland?”

2023 – Prof. Maria Sobolewska, “Race and ethnicity in politics: Is Scotland different”
