Introduction

Abstract

This chapter places our research into public and elite attitudes to constitutional change in the UK in historical context. It considers the situation on 19 September 2014, the day after Scotland voted to remain in the UK. In the months that followed, significant developments occurred in the governance of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We consider those developments and also set out the approach we adopted to our research and the structure of this book.
