Title: New Wales? New culture?
Authors: Thomas, Ned
Permanent link:
Date: 2001
Abstract: Starting with an interpretation of the 1997 Welsh referendum result in terms of identity, the paper broadens the discussion of political culture to include changes in the Welsh economy, the influence of the European Union, the status of the Welsh language following devolution, and concludes with some perceptions of a more subjective kind from within recent Welsh literature. The new weak constitutional arrangements consolidate some gains made in an earlier period and set a different and problematic context for future development.
