This book examines territorial governance in Asia in the context of central-local relations. In an era of attempts to deal with issues such as decentralization, conflict involving ethnic and religious enclaves, and demands for regional autonomy, it is timely to examine central-local relations in a pan-Asian perspective, assessing the attempts in a range of different systems, federal and unitary, to re-order constitutional structures for territorial governance, including local government. The book looks at the constitutional systems for organizing central-local relations of this kind and attempts to draw conclusions from contemporary experiences.
