(p.75) 5 Failed Europeanisation in the 1970s
Between Two Unions

Paolo Dardanelli

Manchester University Press

This chapter examines the failure to Europeanise the politics of self-government, which meant that the latter remained a two-level, instead of a three-level, fixture where the Yes vote was at a disadvantage. It identifies the three main aspects in the elite actors' failure to Europeanise self-government in the 1970s. This chapter also emphasises that the failure to Europeanise was also a failure to influence public opinion in order to support the elite project of devolution. A discussion of the three main conclusions that emerged from the analysis conducted so far of the politics of self-government in the 1970s is included.

Keywords:   failed Europeanisation, Yes vote, public opinion, devolution, 1970s self-government
