Nationalism, governance and policymaking in Scotland: The Scottish National Party (SNP) in power

Margaret Arnott, Jenny Ozga

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article explores policy development under the Scottish National Party (SNP) government, focusing on education policy. As a minority government the SNP needs to govern on the basis of co-operation and consensus. It has presented itself as a party with capacity for government but limited by the restricted autonomy of devolution. The ability to pass large amounts of legislation is more challenging for a minority government.
