Governance and Devolution
This course explores the structural changes to the constitutional arrangements of the United Kingdom. The most obvious of these are the creation of legislative and executive bodies in Scotland and Wales, together with a resumption of devolved government in Northern Ireland. The course will explore the opportunities and tensions created by these innovations and will also explore the less public shifts in the relationships between the three branches of government. Issues concerning accountability, democratic engagement and what constitutes 'good governance' are explored to give an understanding of the broader relationships between the 'regions' and tiers of government/governance at the state and EU levels.
