Scotland 2021 gathers some of the country's most insightful thinkers to ask: where are we going and what priorities should we set? Scotland is still experiencing deep post-EU referendum and post-independence referendum shifts in civil society, with a new political landscape emerging at Holyrood and beyond. Continuing austerity and the emergence of a precarious economy, the challenges of climate change and the insecurity of both the European and British Unions are huge factors influencing the next five years. Scotland 2021 offers immediate and agenda-setting responses to the May 2016 election, to the first hundred days of a new Scottish Parliament, and to the scale and nature of change that faces us. The book examines the prospects for a new politics, as well as looking at how vital issues facing Scotland might be handled and progressed in the light of the changing political settlement. In rapidly changing times social and political movements need dynamism and imagination. Scotland 2021 aims to bring inspiration and radical ideas to the fore. Contributors include Irvine Welsh, Joyce McMillan, Katherine Trebeck, Gerry Hassan, Talat Yaqoob, Alyn Smith MEP and a wide range of commentators, academics and activists from different backgrounds.
