Abstract

As the result of last week's election begins to sink in, one thing on the minds of politicians in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland is the fate of devolved authority after Brexit. Anthony M. Bertelli (Bocconi and Penn State) asks how Brexit can give them more policymaking power. Prime Minister Boris Johnson endorsed devolved authority during a September trip to Scotland: “We are going to maximise the power of the North. And we are going to make sure that it is people here who are in control over the things that matter to them.” Michael Russell, Scotland’s Secretary for Government Business and Constitutional Relations, saw things differently. He claimed that Westminster is “determined” to roll back devolution in favour of a “more centralised state.”
