A Roundup of Brookings Analysis and Commentary on Scotland's Independence Vote
September 17, 2014,
In 1706 and 1707, the Acts of Union joined the Kingdoms of England and Scotland into one country, Great Britain. On Thursday, the people of Scotland will vote "yes" or "no" on whether to become an independent country again after three centuries of union. Over the last year, the leading voices of both sides, as well as Brookings experts, have offered their perspectives on the historic vote and potential security, governance and economic implications of a victory for the independence movement.
