Review: CONCEPT Seminar, Political Education in Scotland: Looking Back, Looking Forward

  • Carolyn McKerracher Sessional Teaching Fellow, Moray House, Edinburgh.

Abstract


The Referendum on Scottish independence left an important legacy, in that it generated an interest in politics across a diverse range of social groups, as well as enfranchising 16 and 17 year olds. The UK General Election in May 2015 also witnessed a remarkable change in political fortunes for the Labour Party in Scotland and the Scottish Liberal Democrats, with an overwhelming victory for the SNP. This changing national context appears to reflect a greater interest in politics in communities which, in turn, should stimulate motivation to engage in political education.
