about this item

This book is situated within the context of devolution and constitutional change. The territories of Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England – armed with a Parliament (Scotland) and Elected Assemblies (Wales, Northern Ireland, and London) – provide the basis for doing things differently, and better. In Wales in particular, Devolution has certainly been the biggest shake-up to the British and UK state apparatus in recent times.

This consolidation of Wales as a regional/national space of social and economic governance, with increasingly sharp territorial definition has refocused attention on the dynamics of spatial difference within the country. The authors of the book analyse the impact of the changes and the way the Welsh localities stack up against one another, with important conclusions for the economy, policy and governance.
