Into the Third Term of Devolution in the UK Alan Trench
The State of the Nations 2008: Into the third term of devolution in the United Kingdom is the sixth publication of a major research programme into devolution in the United Kingdom, published on behalf of the Constitution Unit at University College London.
Law making is a primary function of government, and how well the three devolved UK legislatures exercise this function will be a crucial test of the whole devolution project. This book provides the first systematic study and authoritative data to start that assessment.
This book is the fifth, and final, volume in the State of the Nations yearbook series on devolution in the UK. It explores the future of devolution, by examining the new political dynamics devolution has put into play.
This book is the fourth volume of a major five-year research programme on devolution funded by the Leverhulme Trust. It provides a stock-take of the effect of devolution during the first term of the Scottish Parliament and National Assembly for Wales.
