SCPO Scottish Elections 2016 resource
The SCPO have put together a collection of topical briefings designed for Scottish church groups who are planning an election meeting / hustings event.

The resource has been designed so that political party candidates can be questioned on some of the most important issues facing people in Scotland today, and churches can be involved in the wider public debate.
The subjects covered are: Economy; Constitution, People and Parliament; Policing, Crime and Punishment; Education; Food Poverty, Housing and Homelessness; Land Reform; Health; Refugees and Migration; Europe and External Affairs; and Environment, Energy and Climate Change.
This is followed by a ‘How To’ guide on holding hustings events to equip groups to organise their own.
We would like to thank all those who contributed to the Scottish Elections 2016 resource - your help has been invaluable and will hopefully encourage churches and individuals to explore these issues more and hold their candidates and ultimately their politicians to account.
