Speaker list finalised

A last minute decision (Wednesday) to add new sessions to accommodate the higher than anticipated demand for tickets led to an urgent search for high-quality speakers who could be available at short notice. Fortunately people responded brilliantly!

With two sessions on Surveillance in Scottish Society, a session on constitutional issues and the democratic deficit, and a session on the liberty of the vulnerable in our society (disability rights, children’s rights, etc.), it should be a fantastic event.

- Patrick Harvie MSP
Co-convenor of the Scottish Green Party and Glasgow MSP

- Prof Mike Nellis
Professor of Community and Criminal Justice, Strathclyde University & Institute for Advance Studies

- John Scott
