(p.54) Chapter 3 The Scottish Context
Constituting Scotland

W. Elliot Bulmer

Edinburgh University Press

Constitutions have to fit the context for which they are intended. Before examining specific constitutional proposals for the future constitution of an independent Scotland, this chapter therefore explores the contextual conditions that set the needs and basic parameters of constitutional design. Subjects covered include national identity, the party system, religious influences and sectarian divisions, ideology, and the internal territorial politics of Scotland.

Keywords:   National identity, Party system, Religion, Sectarianism, Ideology, Social Democracy, Territorial Politics
