In Federalism and Subsidiarity, adistinguished interdisciplinary group of scholars in political science, law,and philosophy address the application and interaction of the concept offederalism within law and government. What are the best justifications for andconceptions of federalism? What are the most useful criteria for deciding whatpowers should be allocated to national governments and what powers reserved tostate or provincial governments? What are the implications of the principle ofsubsidiarity for such questions? What should be the constitutional standing ofcities in federations? Do we need to "remap" federalism to reckon with theemergence of translocal and transnational organizations with porous boundariesthat are not reflected in traditional jurisdictional conceptions? Examiningthese questions and more, this latest installation in the NOMOS series sheds new light on the allocation of power withinfederations.
