About the Event
By any comparative international standards, the Union has proved both successful and durable as an arrangement of state. Too often, the case for the United Kingdom relies on nostalgia. A modern argument for the Union cannot rely on our memories of past achievements and sacrifices, however heroic. It must be remade, constantly. The Union is a remarkably enduring constitutional arrangement and a cohesive national state. What is the future of the Union today?
