9780415548441: New Directions in Federalism Studies (Routledge/ECPR Studies in European Political Science)

Federalism has experienced a remarkable renaissance in recent decades – as an alternative way to accommodate ethnic differences; as a tool to combat remote, undemocratic and ineffective central governments; and lastly, as a means to promote economic performance in the developing world through decentralisation.

This book seeks to bring different aspects and perspectives of federalism studies closer together, by providing an analytical framework which transcends the sub-fields and encourages contributors to look beyond the comfort zones of their own disciplinary approaches to the topic. The authors seek to achieve this aim by structuring the contributions around four dimensions federalism studies:

 

· the development and design of federal institutions;

· federalism and democratic participation, representation and accountability;

· federalism and the accommodation of territorially-based ethnic, cultural and linguistic differences;

· federalism and public policy.

 

With a strong comparative framework, New Directions in Federalism Studies will be of interest to students and scholars of Federalism, Government, Regionalism, and Multi-level Governance. It will also offer insights of relevance to Comparative Politics, Public Policy, Public Administration, Nationalism, and West European Politics.

Review:

‘The edited collection, as a classic format, is perhaps underappreciated for its important role as a vessel through which academics can push against and manipulate the boundaries of the literatures their works lie within.’ – David S. Moon, University of Liverpool, Political Studies Review, Vol 10:3, Sept. 2012

'This excellent book can and should be used in any current course on comparative federalism.' - Klaus-Jurgen Nagel, Scottish Affairs, no. 76, Summer 2011
