About The Scottish Parliament in its Own Words: An Oral History
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
‘The Scottish Parliament has been utterly transformative. I don’t think our predecessors that voted for this Parliament in 1997 could have envisioned the difference it would make to Scottish public life.’ Humza Yousaf, MSP
Thomas A.W. Stewart, editor of The Scottish Parliament in its Own Words: An Oral History, conducted around 80 interviews with staff, MSPs and journalists, old and new, about their careers and experiences of the Scottish Parliament for the Scottish Oral History Project.
Now in its twentieth year, the Scottish Parliament has proven to be ingrained within the nation’s political landscape. Thomas will be joined by contributors to the book to discuss their personal experiences of the Parliament’s origins, early days and development over the past two decades.
