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 to accommodate the constitutional needs of a particular country. This text illustrates and compares a variety of experiences that countries across the world have had in the practical application of federal principles, and moots a long-felt need by analyzing recent international developments in federalism and regionalism. Contributions from world-renowned scholars in the theory and application of federal principles mean that the book should be of value to all involved in the study and management of federal-type systems.
