‘Evaluate the extent to which the location of sovereignty has changed in recent years’


When you see this question do you think it is asking you:

It has vs has not

Has changed a lot vs not so much


Please can someone help? Thank you!

Introduction:
Define Sovereignty and give an insight to argument.

For:
- Devolution - Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Power has been distributed around the UK and it can somewhat be argued that sovereignty has moved away from Westminster to other parts of the UK.
- ECJ and EU powers up until 31st January 2020.
- Council of Europe and ECHR and the fact that the HRA 1998 has a lot of influence over the UK. Statements of incompatability and all of that.

Against:
- Westminster still retains a considerable amount of powers and not all of the devolved administrations have 'Devo Max'.
- The UK is no longer part of EU. This means that sovereignty effectively still resides in Westminster.

I hope this helps.

Thank you so much, are you arguing that the location of sovereignty has changed vs the location of sovereignty has not changed, or the location of sovereignty has changed significant vs by a small margin?

Yes because of devolution and metro mayors being implemented in the past 25 years. No worries! Good luck!
