Abstract:
This dissertation examines opportunities for Scottish exporters to differentiate in target markets overseas on the basis of their Scottishness. Findings include: 1. ultimately, identity is largely conferred by others, rather than being shaped by assertions on one's own behalf; 2. definitional experiences of "Scottishness" may frequently be derived from and mediated by determinants that lie outwith Scotland; 3. constructed identifications of key or core Scottish values, by their syncretism, present impoverished views of Scotland; 4. "culture of origin" is a more productive concept than "country-of-origins". Opportunities are seen to establish a widely applicable methodology to add value in export markets.
