Abstract

Scotland's urgent constitutional question, which will be addressed in a referendum in the autumn of 2014, challenges many conventional assumptions about what is at stake in the struggle over sovereign authority and political identity, and about how that struggle might be treated and resolved. This essay investigates that challenge.

Keywords: sovereignty, Scotland, referendum, independence, devolution, EU, multi-level governance, identity
