The end of the Cold War profoundly altered the dynamics between
and within the various states in Europe and the rest of the World,
resulting in a resurgence of interest in the concept of federalism.
This shift in balance has been further fuelled by the increase in
the number of conflicts arising from the disaffection of the
diverse ethnic or religious minorities residing within these states
(e.g. Sudan, Iraq). Furthermore, globalization is forcing
governments not only to work together, but also to reconsider their
internal roles as guarantors of economic growth, with regions
playing the major part.
It is the aim of the series to look at federal or federated
states in historical, theoretical and comparative contexts. Thus it
will be possible to build a common framework for the constructive
analysis of federalism on the meta-level, and this in turn will
enable us to identify and define federal tradition traditions, and
develop the theoretical.
This unique and ground-breaking new series aims to promote a
complete and indepth understanding of federalism by collectively
bringing together the work of political scientists, lawyers,
historians, economists, sociologists and anthropologists, and with
this in mind, contributions are welcomed from authors in all of
these disciplines. But whereas the federal approach is the crank of
the series, it does not mean that contributions must adhere to the
federal approach; critical contributions are welcome too.
