This chapter focuses on the successful Europeanisation that occurred during the 1990s. Its differentiates the European dimension during the 1970s and the 1990s, and looks at its impact on the politics of Scottish self-government in the 1990s. It shows that in a reversal of the 1979 situation, this process of Europeanisation served as a factor of unity and strength on the Yes side and had wide consequences for the result of the 1997 referendum. The evidence presented in this chapter suggests that the exploitation of the European dimension was the most important factor that explains the endorsement of devolution in 1997, relative to its rejection in 1979.
