Summary
"This comparative volume on intergovernmental relations in twelve federal countries and the European Union explores one of the most vital operational aspects of federalism: interactions among orders and units of government in federal and quasi-federal systems. Such interactions take many different forms, serve a variety of purposes, and operate through a plethora of formal and informal channels. Each chapter describes the principal mechanisms and processes of intergovernmental relations, highlighting those that work well and those that do not. Topics considered include the impact of intergovernmental relations on democracy, citizen participation, accountability, justice, and the rule of law. Chapters also evaluate whether mechanisms and processes are effective in terms of policy making and implementation. This volume shows how intergovernmental relations are an integral part of every federal system, regardless of differences in history, constitutional framework, resources, and federal design."--
