Social justice in a devolved Wales

Buy Article:

$32.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

This article aims to provide an insider's account of post-devolution policy making in Wales. It focuses on the work of the Welsh Assembly Government in the field of social justice and argues that a set of distinctive and internally coherent principles can be seen in operation across the responsibilities which the Assembly discharges. These include a belief in the usefulness of government, a commitment to progressive universalism, a preference for cooperation rather than competition as a means of improving standards of public services, and the pursuit of equality of outcome, rather than simply opportunity. The article concludes that these principles reflect the underlying preferences of Welsh voters, as expressed in the political make-up of the devolved Assembly.
