Working Paper 5- Policy Analysis
MVAin4 All Locations April 21 2022
The implications of devolution have a central role to play in the following analyses. This document represents the within case analysis, whereby the analysis of each jurisdiction is undertaken in context where the parameters of the analysis mean the analytical intention is that only policies relating to that particular jurisdiction are considered, wherever this is possible. The within case analyses are informed by a broader conceptual framework which was presented in WP3 Preliminary Analysis of policy differences across the four UK jurisdictions. The WP3 report set out a framing context for understanding policy variation across the four jurisdictions, in large part due to the fact that voluntary action is primarily identified as an unreserved area of policy, meaning policy-making in respect to voluntary action is devolved to the respective jurisdictions.
