Abstract:

The constituency associations of the UK's national parties have played important roles in those parties' organisational adaptations to devolution in Scotland and Wales. What we lack, however, is an analytical framework to describe and account for the development of these associations in multi-level contexts. This article presents such a framework. I develop a continuum of constituency associations that ranges between unitary and separated archetypes, with associations' placements determined by national-regional linkages through structures, personnel, resources and activities. The article concludes by outlining the organisational, political and institutional influences that shape constituency associations' adaptation to devolution.
