Crises Capitalism and Independence Doctrines
Much of leftist debate on ‘the Scottish question’ is perplexing, not to say frustrating. What could be an opportunity for dialogue is instead functioning as a process of closure, where independence is posited as ipso facto ‘progressive’.

This article aims to open up a critical dialogue on independence, self-determination and nation-building, and to re-focus these questions on participation as empowerment.
