This article deals with the process of Europeanisation of a regional actor, the Scottish National Party (SNP), in the period between 1973 - when the UK entered the European Union - and 1997 - when a devolved Scottish parliament was established. The party played a crucial role in the politics of Scottish self-government, especially in the two phases when the latter was at the forefront of the UK political agenda, culminating in two referendums: 1973-79 and 1988-97.
