Abstract

Helen Fawcett has traced the attempts of the Scottish Executive to develop its own policy on social exclusion, like health a field where Scotland has distinctive and pressing needs but unlike health an area where relatively few policy levers have been devolved.19 She found that despite brave attempts the Scottish Executive had neither succeeded in establishing its own policy nor succeeded in influencing significant changes in UK-wide policy to deal with the particular problems found in Scotland.
