Patterns of Regionalism and Federalism

Lessons for the UK - The Clifford Chance Lectures: Volume 8

By Basil S. Markesinis

Edited by: Basil S. Markesinis, Jorg Fedtke

Federalism remains a highly contentious issue in the UK. A substantial amount of devolution has already become part of the local landscape and more may follow. With the competence for a number of policies thus shifting from Westminster to Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and in future perhaps even within England itself, foreign experience with federal and regional structures becomes a valuable source of ideas. In a series of contributions, distinguished experts from a wide range of legal systems including Canada, the United States, Germany, South Africa and the European Union present their experience, criticisms, and views concerning, among other things, the distribution of power, judicial review and human rights protection in federalized and regionalized states. The book contains the papers from a conference jointly organized by the Institute of Global Law (UCL) and the Institute of Transnational Law (The University of Texas at Austin).
