2024 General Election Manifesto Analysis: Devolution and the Constitution

This is the second issue of our manifesto analysis publications, supported by the Nuffield Foundation. This is our comprehensive guide to what the eight major parties’ (Conservatives, Labour, SNP, Lib Dems, Reform UK, Green Party of England and Wales, Scottish Greens and Alba) manifestos say about what they propose on the evolution of devolution, Scottish independence and future referenda, and devolved funding.

The UK General Election on the 4th of July, 2024, follows a period of significant economic and societal challenges. In a series of webinars, briefings, podcasts, and articles, we analyse the party manifestos and communicate the implications of different parties' policy commitments for Scotland. This is supported by the Nuffield Foundation as part of their general election briefing series.
