Conclusion: has devolution worked?

John Curtice, B. Seyd

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses if devolution has worked. It is part of a collection which is based on a wide ranging programme of research, involving dedicated surveys and interviews across Scotland, Wales and England. The results provide important new evidence on how devolution has been seen to have performed. What are its perceived achievements? What are its shortcomings? Is the new devolution ‘settlement’ stable, or is there a demand for further reform? By bringing together perspectives from the public, members of the devolved legislatures and representatives of civil society, the book establishes a unique picture of where devolution in Britain stands today.
