Summary
"Revitalizing Democracy? Devolution and Civil Society in Wales takes advantage of the 'real-time' experiment of devolution to assess whether these high expectations were realized in practice. It investigates the influence of regional government on political culture by focusing on the impact of devolution on civil society during the Assembly's first term. Its particular focus is on whether devolution enhances civil society's ability to contribute to revitalizing democracy and the interrelationship between civil society and national identity. The book develops an empirical understanding of post-devolution civil society through theoretically informed, detailed case study based research. It illustrates the significant impact of devolution on civil society and suggests potential policy prescriptions. It is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary Welsh politics and UK devolution, and has a broader appeal to those interested in civil society and comparative research on regional government."--BOOK JACKET
