Conferences

The Scotsman Conferences give the people who matter a space to debate public policy, hear new ideas and contribute to policy-making. They address the big questions facing the nation, including the biggest one of all, the question of independence.

We hope our events can bring forward as much expert analysis and advice as possible in key areas such as the law, defence, Europe, the economy, social welfare, public finance - and of course, the debate surrounding Scottish independence. 

As well as conferences focusing on independence, The Scotsman Conferences will be hosting many other high level public policy debates through 2014 and beyond.

The Scotsman Conferences are not predictable talking-shops that lead nowhere. The most authoritative speakers are challenged to get right to the heart of the big issues. Delegates make an active contribution and conference reports comes with practical recommendations for change.
