In January 2022, a new framework for intergovernmental relations (IGR) in the United Kingdom (UK) was published by the UK Government.

Officials from all four nations of the UK had been working on an agreement since 2018. It was agreed by Ministers that, in light of the UK’s departure from the European Union (EU), the four governments of the UK would have to work more closely together to manage things like policy divergence and the implementation of international obligations.

One year in to the new agreement, this feature looks at how the new structures are being implemented, and whether it has been the “significant constitutional step forward” it has been described as.
