The Independence Convention is an umbrella grouping for supporters of Scottish independence, also known as Interim Forum for an Independence Convention (IFIC). The Chairman is Murray Ritchie.
The Convention had described four immediate questions that they intended to address, as follows:
- What are the specific benefits, if any, of national self-determination for Scotland in social, cultural, political and economic terms? What are the costs?
- What, in broad terms, will an independent Scotland look like?
- How will the transition between devolution and full independence be managed?
- What are the principles and values that will underpin an independent Scotland and its relationships with the other successor state(s) to the United Kingdom, and to the rest of the world?
The interim convention launched on St. Andrew's Day, 2005.
