Graham Day, formerly Reader in Sociology at Bangor University and author of Making Sense of Wales (2002) reviews the various stages of constitutional change through which powers have been devolved to Wales from the UK government since the 1990s. He notes how the gradual extension of the powers of the Welsh Government, necessary to provide a workable and settled solution, has been accomplished through a remarkable democratic transition. As emphasis moves now from constitutional reform to the tangible benefits of devolved governance in Wales, he also provides an assessment of some of the achievements of the Welsh Government.
