Abstract

Scotland’s decision in the upcoming independence referendum will have serious implications for the whole UK. It has been argued that all UK citizens outside Scotland should therefore be entitled to vote on Scottish independence, in line with the ‘all affected interests’ principle of democratic theory. Ben Saunders asks whether we should apply this principle to the referendum, concluding that it is not necessary for the result to be considered legitimate.
