The aims of Devolution in Context are twofold. First, it presents a clear analysis of regional government in the member states of the EU, and secondly, it assesses the impact or potential impact of regional governments on policy making in Europe.

The focus of this study is explicitly institutional and is therefore a piece of legal scholarship and certainly not in line with some current trends in political science.

It is not a classic legal textbook but lies firmly in the socio-legal approach to comparative public law. For this reason it draws on a number of disciplines, including political science, history, philosophy, and economics, to place the regional institutions in their true context.

Designed to be used as an advanced student text, John Hopkins' cross-disciplinary approach will attract interest from political science courses as well as students of constitutional law.
