Description

Cardiff University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

The changing political and legal landscape in Wales poses exciting and challenging questions for those with an academic or professional interest in politics and policy.This course of study is designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of the institutions and practices of governance in post-devolution Wales. In addition to focusing on politics and governance in Wales, the course locates developments in Wales in a broader UK and European context, providing also an overview of relationships between the various levels of governance. The course is taught by the leading experts in Welsh politics and government and benefits from the close links that exist between Cardiff University and the institutions of devolved government in Wales.The MSc Economics in Welsh Government and Politics provides an informed insight into, and understanding of, the emerging Welsh polity, a polity based on distinctive historical and cultural factors, a fast evolving constitutional dispensation, new policy-making processes, and still developing civil society capacity.The relevance of the scheme is not confined to Wales. Issues relating to shared sovereignty and multi-level governance are central to contemporary political debates and the Welsh case provides a fascinating case study of broader trends in European and global governance.
