Summary

Published in 1999, this volume provides the first thorough analysis of the elements of sustainable public policy in a devolved Scotland. Following the vote for a Scottish Parliament in the 1997 referendum, it explores the immediate and longer-term challenges likely to confront Scotland. The book brings together policy-thinkers and practitioners from academia, business, the voluntary sector and politics to ask: What are the key opportunities and constraints around sustainability? What practical difference will devolution make? What changes within and beyond government will be required to strengthen the roots of sustainable development? It includes the findings from a specially-commissioned opinion poll published in this volume for the first time. Offering a far-sighted analysis, the book poses a series of timely questions and offers policy recommendations for the next decade.
