This chapter reprises the double role of the Catalan and the Scottish political classes as products and agents of regionalisation and professionalisation as depicted in the two previous chapters. It discusses the implications of political regionalisation and professionalisation for regional democracy in Catalonia and Scotland and for the modern state in Spain and the United Kingdom. This chapter also re-evaluates the utility of the concept of political class as an analytical tool.

Keywords: political classes; political regionalisation; political professionalisation; regional democracy; Catalonia; Spain; modern state; United Kingdom; analytical tool
