Understanding devolution in Wales

7 Section 3 summary

You have reached the end of the third and final section of this course. Before moving on to the conclusion, take a moment to reflect on what you have learned about Welsh voters, issues of identity and how these play in to the wider debate about devolution in Wales:

  • Voters often express contradictory opinions about the political process in Wales, for example, believing it to have little meaningful impact on their lives while at the same time believing further powers should be devolved.
  • A degree of apathy for the Welsh political process is perhaps illustrated by low voter turnout.
  • Debates around Welsh politics are not moribund, with ongoing dialogue amongst Welsh voters about the need to abolish the devolved institutions or enhance their power further to the point of Welsh independence.
