There are around five million people in Scotland. On the 18th of September 2014, Scotland will be given the chance to answer a profound and seemingly simple question: Should Scotland become an independent country? However, there are many complex questions associated with the debate on independence. The University of Dundee gives the independence debate the platform of Five Million Questions, on which to address the nation's concerns over Scotland's constitutional future through a series of lectures and activities.
