In Federalism and Subsidiarity, a
distinguished interdisciplinary group of scholars in political science, law,
and philosophy address the application and interaction of the concept of
federalism within law and government. What are the best justifications for and
conceptions of federalism? What are the most useful criteria for deciding what
powers should be allocated to national governments and what powers reserved to
state or provincial governments? What are the implications of the principle of
subsidiarity for such questions? What should be the constitutional standing of
cities in federations? Do we need to “remap” federalism to reckon with the
emergence of translocal and transnational organizations with porous boundaries
that are not reflected in traditional jurisdictional conceptions? Examining
these questions and more, this latest installation in the NOMOS series sheds new light on the allocation of power within
federations.
