Evaluating Federal Systems

Front Cover
Bertus De Villiers
Juta & Company, 1994 - Law - 439 pages
Many countries are currently debating the merits and implications of a federal-type dispensation. Some fear that it may encourage regional apartheid and discrimination, while others see it as a cohesive force. Federalism, however, has many faces and applications, and it offers a host of ways of accommodating the constitutional needs of a particular country. Evaluating Federal Systems illustrates and compares a variety of experiences that countries across the world have had in the practical application of federal principles, and meets a long-felt need by analysing recent international developments in federalism and regionalism. The book is made up of contributions from world-renowned scholars in the theory and application of federal principles, and will be of great value to all involved in the study and management of federal-type systems.
