Federalism is about dividing and sharing government, often in complex ways that involve some tasks being done jointly. Are federal systems capable of effective joint policy-making? Is this possible in the fast-moving context of globalization? In Market Rules Douglas Brown examines these questions through a comparative study of Australia and Canada, looking at recent major reforms to the economic union in the two federations and comparing them with the evolving European Union (EU)

Contested federalism : certainty and ambiguity in the Canadian federation by Herman Bakvis( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2019 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contested Federalism: Certainty and Ambivalence in the Canadian Federation examines the relations between and within the two main orders of government in Canada--the federal government and the provincial and territorial governments, the two central players in the intergovernmental system. The text also examines other orders of government, or would-be governments, which can be considered part of the broader federal and intergovernmental framework, even if these governments or proto-governments lack explicit constitutional recognition--that is, municipalities and First Nations, and other Aboriginal peoples' governments. In doing so, the book focuses on three areas: basic federal and intergovernmental structure, the constitutional and institutional framework, and what can be termed 'federal governance'. Federalism, and particularly the Canadian variant, involves an ongoing contestation of interests, ideas, and identities. It is a contestation that sometimes clarifies but often obscures the nature of conflicts and the manner in which they are resolved. Because of the great degree of ambivalence associated with federalism, the authors provide students with the conceptual tools and basic knowledge of various governmental processes that will allow them to analyze and, if necessary, critique intergovernmental relations
