New domestic constitutional arrangements emerged in the UK after it left the EU. SPICe’s common frameworks hub is focused on explaining the role of common frameworks within these arrangements. It also tracks scrutiny of common frameworks by the Scottish Parliament.
The hub is organised into two sections: common frameworks and background legislation. Developments in common frameworks will help to determine how Scotland and the rest of the UK interact in a number of key areas.
Common frameworks are agreements which establish policy direction in areas where devolved and reserved powers and interests intersect.
The background information section provides links to a variety of sources including an FAQ , relevant legislation and SPICe documents relating to common frameworks.
The buttons below take you to these sections of the hub.
