Maggie Chapman

Socialist, feminist, green

Maggie is a Scot by choice, and believes that Scotland can be an independent, outward-looking, peace-making country.

Another Scotland is possible: we can transform our economy, society and democracy.

Maggie is Rector of the University of Aberdeen and former lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University.

Maggie campaigns for free education, the rights of international students, better mental health services, and more.

Radical, green politics can show how hope and compassion can win over fear and indifference. Now is the time to be true to our radicalism.

We cannot have a just world or a clean environment with a dirty economy.
