UCL to study newly devolved countries

June 4, 1999

* Constitutional experts at University College London have welcomed the assemblies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as an opportunity to study the political dynamics of a devolved system.

Academics at UCL's Constitution Unit have started a series of studies on devolution. Work will be carried out on the new proportional voting systems, how far the new assemblies ape the Westminster model, multi-level democracy, the possibilities of Scottish independence and a case study of how the governance and management of the health services change in each country.

The unit is also bidding against Edinburgh University for a Pounds 1.1 million five-year research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, on nation and regions.
