Recognised as study group in 1984; granted research committee status in 1987.
RC28 facilitates the pursuit of comparative research and scholarship on federalism, intra-state regionalism, decentralization, and multilevel governance. This includes the theoretical, conceptual, and normative discussion as well as the empirical analysis of territorial power-sharing. Topics of particular interest to RC28 are intergovernmental relations; administrative and fiscal relationships; multilevel political behavior and policy-making; and territorially-based ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity. RC28’s comparative attention spans federal, confederal, quasi-federal, as well as non-federal systems, including subnational and supranational political bodies.
