Abstract

Pending agreement between the Scottish and UK Governments, and the completion of the relevant Parliamentary processes, Scotland is set to gain significant new powers over aspects of the social security system. In order to help Poverty Alliance members better understand what these changes are and how they may be used Paul Spicker, Emeritus Professor at Robert Gordon University, has produced this short briefing. This briefing paper is part of the process to allow Poverty Alliance members determine the priorities for our network in relation to new social security powers in the years to come.
