Has Devolution Delivered?

edited by Catherine Bromley, John Curtice, David McCrone, and Alison Park

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Provides a short history of devolution including how the 1999 and 2003 elections were fought and their outcomes
  • Looks at public attitudes to 4 key objectives many hoped devolution would achieve: (i) a better-governed country; (ii) a public more involved in how the country is governed; (iii) an electorate with more influence; (iv) the development of open civic nationalism, not one based on narrow notions of ethnicity
  • Asks what we should expect of devolution over the next decade based on what we have learnt about public opinion in Scotland
  • Written by an established team of writers known for their work in Scottish survey analysis."
