Abstract

Given the complexity of the United Kingdom’s system of multi-layered governance, and the intertwining of policy competences across European, UK-wide and devolved levels, the devolved governments and legislatures necessarily have a strong interest in the shape that Brexit will take and how this will affect issues within their spheres of responsibility, as well as the future extent of those responsibilities. The added complication that a majority of voters in both Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to Remain in the EU, and the crucial importance of the issue of EU membership to broader constitutional questions in both those territories, makes the devolution dimension to Brexit all the more important.
