Dr Françoise Boucek appeared on BBC Radio Wales to discuss the prospect of a referendum on independence in Scotland

22 January 2012

Dr Françoise Boucek appeared on BBC Radio Wales on Sunday to discuss the prospect of a referendum on independence in Scotland. She describes a key difference between the separatist movements in Quebec and Scotland- in Quebec the movement was tied up with “the politics of language”. 

Dr Boucek and presenter Vaughan Roderick raise the issue of whether the future of a state is a matter for the whole state or for the part of the state that may or may not decide to leave- for example, is the future of Scotland an issue for the whole of the UK or just for Scotland?
