Read the summary report of the debate on Borders, Immigration and Citizenship
On September 25 2013 the RSE hosted a public discussion seminar on the impacts of constitutional change upon borders, immigration and citizenship.
The seminar examined how constitutional change might affect the citizenship rights and status of those living within and outside independent Scotland, including the relationship of residence to nationality, questions of dual nationality, and freedom of movement within the British Isles and the wider European Union. It also considered the relationship between citizenship and cultural identity in a new Scotland.
