Blog for this event

Representing a unique contribution to the analysis and discussion of the unfolding Eurozone crisis in terms of the relationship between central and local government, this book addresses a number of important fiscal and political economy questions. To what extent have local and regional governments contributed to the crisis? To what degree have subnational services and investments borne the brunt of the adjustments? How have multi-level fissures affected tensions between different levels of government from the supranational to the local? This volume covers these and many other critical issues that have been largely ignored despite their relevance.

Ehtisham Ahmad is Senior Fellow at the University of Bonn, Center for Development Research,  Visiting Senior Fellow at the LSE Asia Research Centre, and Pao Yu-Kong Professor at Zhejiang University, co-editor and contributor to the volume.

Giorgio Brosio is Emeritus Professor at the University of Turin, co-editor and contributor to the volume.
