Comparing federal systems by Ronald L Watts( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this updated second edition, Ronald Watts provides a clear analysis of the design and operation of a sample of federations chosen for their relevance to Canadian issues. There is much that can be learned by Canadians from the experience of federal systems elsewhere. At present there are 24 federations in the world (representing over forty per cent of the world's population). A distinctive feature of the popularity of federalism in the contemporary world is that its application has taken a variety of forms and has includes some new variants and innovations." "Countries studied include the United States, Switzerland, Australia, Austria, and Germany as examples of developed industrial societies; India and Malaysia as examples of multilingual and multicultural federations; Belgium and Spain as examples of emerging federal systems that illustrate bicommunal and asymmetrical approaches; and Czechoslovakia and Pakistan as examples of bicommunal federations that have failed. Watts compares the interaction of social diversity and political institutions, the distribution of powers and finances, the processes contributing to flexibility or rigidity in adjustment, the extent of internal symmetry or asymmetry, the degree of centralization and decentralization, the character of representation in federal institutions, the role of constitutions and courts, the provisions for constitutional rights and secession, and the pathology of federations."--Back cover

Stretching the federation : the art of the state in Canada by Robert Andrew Young( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Strong movements are afoot in Canada to decentralize the design and delivery of many programs, and to clarify federal and provincial responsibilities. This volume presents contributions from practitioners and observers of this trend. It includes sweeping papers on the comparative evolution of federations, and on the question of whether decentralization is inherently conservative. There are also chapters on decentralization in health care, possible reallocations of programs and tax revenues, the extent of overlap and duplication in service delivery, and fiscal decentralization. Each paper is followed by a commentary."--Jacket

Disability and federalism : comparing different approaches to full participation( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All modern democratic states have fashioned policies and programs in response to the needs of persons with disabilities. These vary from nation to nation and in Disability and Federalism the authors examine the impact of the federal regimes of Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, and the United States on disability policy and programs and evaluate whether disablement - including its international, organizational, political, and attitudinal dimensions - has affected the operation of federalism in the five countries studied. The conclusion that emerges is that neither federalism nor the specific type of federal regime makes much difference to the philosophy of government, the values that underlie policy-making, or the general policy orientation to disabled people at any given historical moment. Individual federal realities, however, are at the heart of the formation of disability policy and the striking variations in program design and delivery that occur between states. Contributors include David Cameron, Linda Hancock (Deakin University, Australia), Ursula Muench (Universita;t der Bunderswehr Muenchen), Stephen L.Percy (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee), Johanne Poirier (Universite; Libre de Bruxelles and University of Cambridge), Sherri Torjman (Caledon Institute of Social Policy, Ottawa), and Fraser Valentine -

Federalism and labour market policy : comparing different governance and employment strategies by Alain Noël( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The contributors to this volume study five federations - the United States, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Canada - that have different types of market economies and different federal institutions to see exactly how federalism matters for labour market policy. Conversely, they also use labour market politics as a lens to understand federalism better." "The book confirms the importance of institutional arrangements in the contemporary process of adjustment to a more global and post-industrial economy. The economic challenges are the same for the different federations, but the policy responses vary significantly, in accordance with the varieties of capitalism and federalism that prevail in each country. Students of labour market policy should thus pay close attention to the institutional and political context in which decisions are made. Likewise scholars interested in federalism should be sensitive to the diversity of policy choices and constraints faced by federations, and avoid treating them simply as arrangements that disperse authority or contribute to the preservation of markets."--Jacket

The democratic dilemma : reforming Canada's Supreme Court by Nadia Verrelli( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process used to select judges of the Supreme Court of Canada has provoked criticism from the start. Some observers argue the process - where the prime minister has unfettered discretion - suffers from a democratic deficit, but there is also disagreement regarding alternative methods of selection. This book explores the institutional features of the Court, whether the existing process used to select judges ought to be reformed, the overall legitimacy of the Court, as well as the selection and appointment processes of Supreme Court justices in other liberal democracies

The changing federal environment : rebalancing roles( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this edition of Canada: State of the Federation, contributors consider whether and to what degree the relationship between the central government and the provincial and territorial governments has changed in the past decade. The authors address three overarching questions. First, is the power base changing in Canada? If so, how are governments responding? Second, what are the implications of the changing environment for the relationships between governments? And third, are there underlying forces - such as economic or technological change, or demands for citizen engagement - that are pushing some provinces and regions to become more assertive in the global environment? The papers are organized into four categories: those that identify and analyze the changing federal environment; those concerned with the implications of the 2011 federal election; those that deal with health policy and economic federalism; and those that explore the growing importance of the North and the changing dynamics among the provinces and the federal government. Among the topics discussed are the impact of a majority government based on a West-Ontario coalition, with Quebec represented primarily by the Opposition, the implications of the trade-off between health care spending and the public financing of other essential public goods, and second-generation trade agreements, such as the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Trade Agreement."--Publisher's website
