Between Two Unions: Europeanisation and Scottish Devolution

Europeanisation and Scottish devolution

Paolo Dardanelli

Published by Manchester University Press

Devolution Series MUP

This book is the first study of Scottish devolution to adopt an explicitly comparative approach and the first to analyse the impact of the European dimension. It is based on a comparison between the 1970s and the 1990s, with focus on the March 1979 and September 1997 referendums. For each period, it investigates how political parties and interest groups perceived the UK and the EU, how they defined their interests vis-à-vis them, how perceptions and interests shaped their strategies and what influence elite strategies had on mass preferences and ultimately on the referendum results.
