The impact of devolution on social policy

Policy Press

This chapter evaluates in detail the significant area of interfaces and overlaps in policy and provision which have developed with the interaction of both devolved and non-devolved powers between Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the UK government. These overlapping dimensions can be categorised as interfaces and overlaps which require a need for coordination and cooperation; overlaps which produce entanglements; conflict over powers; cross-border activities; and structure for cooperation.

Keywords:   policy, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, UK, government
