This chapter describes the public policy environment in Scotland discussing whether it complies with general notions of policy entrepreneurship by describing the main actors and interactions as well as recent outputs (as seen from a participant observation perspective and primarily having local government, central–local relations as a point of departure). Finally, this chapter compares Scotland’s governance model with the more corporatist models of public administration that can be found in mainland Europe. The aim is to identify some principles of what can make a thriving environment for policy entrepreneurship: a relatively self-contained policy environment, high density of public, civic and academic actors, availability of data, and an outcome-driven ethos.
