Intergovernmental Relations - POL833

Intergovernmental relations present challenges and opportunities for policy makers, and these have intensified as a result of globalisation. This unit will look at the techniques used to overcome the difficulties of intergovernmental relations, and the political issues which arise from divided and shared sovereignty. The unit considers recent developments in federal theory, including fiscal federalism, and presents a comparative study of different models of federalism, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses in different international settings.
