Between Two Unions

This chapter discusses the different degree of Europeanisation of the two periods and summarises the theoretical conclusions of the present work. It tries to explain the radically different extents to which Scottish devolution was Europeanised in the 1970s and in the 1990s and discusses the deepening of European integration. It determines that there is no single factor that can fully account for the variation, and that the several changes among actors and institutions at each of the three levels—European, British, Scottish—played a role. This chapter concludes that it was not the deepening of integration, but how it interacted with change at the state level and what Scottish elite actors made of it, that made the difference.

Keywords:   Europeanisation, theoretical conclusions, Scottish devolution, European integration, Scottish elite actors
