The introduction of devolved government for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland has been the most dramatic constitutional transformation of the United Kingdom in many generations. However, the process has raised as many problems such as a highly uneven transfer of powers with, it seems, no recipient country satisfied and one non-recipient, England, increasingly dissatisfied. This book examines the successes and failures of devolution in terms of institutions, policies, parties and problem-solving. Written by a team of experts on UK politics and drawing upon original data analysis, Devolution in the UK offers an original analysis of the ideological battles between nationalism and labourism/conservatism and the institutional power acquisitions which have underpinned the rapid advance of devolution. It will include coverage of the 2014 independence referendum and the 2016 devolved parliament/assembly elections to offer the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the remarkable evolution of an extraordinary model of devolution. This book will be of interest to students and academics of devolution, governance, identity, sub-national party politics and British politics.
