Government of Scotland by Michael Keating

Book Description

A critical challenge to Scotland's new system of government is the making and implementation of public policy. This book offers a comprehensive account of the policy process in contemporary Scotland. It identifies the key actors and institutions, patterns of policy making, and the extent of convergence and divergence in comparison with England and other devolved territories. Case studies of policy making in urban and rural policy, education, social inclusion and economic development allow the reader to see how policy making works in practice. There is an analysis of financial planning and decision making, and an examination of Scotland's role in UK and European policy networks. Comparisons are made with other devolved governments in Europe and beyond. The book is based on extensive research, including interviews with leaders of interest groups, politicians and officials across the Scottish Executive and in the Scottish Parliament, an analysis of spending patterns, an examination of the legislative output, and case studies of policy making.Key Features: * Uses case studies of policy making in public service provision, health, higher education, social inclusion, economic development and rural policy * Includes material on interest groups and policy communities * Analyses public expenditure in Scotland * Places Scotland in a comparative context as a small European stateless nation
