As part of our series of events in the run-up to the 2021 devolved and local elections, the Institute for Government was delighted to welcome Michael Russell MSP, Scotland's Cabinet Secretary for the Constitution, Europe and External Affairs.
What are the key issues at stake in May's Scottish parliament election? What is the SNP strategy for securing and winning a second independence referendum? And how might the devolution settlement – and the relationship between Holyrood and Westminster – evolve over the coming years?
Michael Russell was in conversation with Akash Paun, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government.
Michael Russell is the Member of the Scottish Parliament for Argyll and Bute, President of the Scottish National Party, and Cabinet Secretary for the Constitution, Europe and External Affairs.
