September 12, 1997

Four Scottish academics, three of them working in England, have won Pounds 56,000 from the Economic and Social Research Council to study the referendum.

David Denver, reader in politics at Lancaster University, is leading the team which includes James Mitchell, senior lecturer in government at Strathclyde University, Charles Pattie, senior lecturer in geography at Sheffield University, and Hugh Bochel, head of the social policy and politics department at Humberside University.

The study will investigate the extent and effectiveness of local and national campaigning, assess the role played by the Scottish media, and carry out a statistical analysis of the referendum results.
