A critical engagement with the state of social policy a decade after Scotland’s devolution in the UK, this book focuses on the successive Scottish administration’s key vision of greater social justice as it pertains to the analysis of its social policy. Arguing that such analysis must be located in wider debates about social justice, it shows how the devolution process has affected the making, implementation, and impact of Scotland’s social programs. Looking at a range of topics, including income inequality, work and welfare, criminal justice, housing, education, and health, the contributors to this volume offer a comprehensive look at the ways administrative vision has been translated—or not—into effective policy.
