A Federal Future for the UK: the Options
Dr Andrew Blick and Professor George Jones

Federal-Future CoverFederalism is defined as ‘a system of government in which central and regional authorities are linked in an interdependent political relationship, in which powers and functions are distributed to achieve a substantial degree of autonomy and integrity in the regional units. In theory, a federal system seeks to maintain a balance such that neither level of government becomes sufficiently dominant to dictate the decision of the other, unlike in a unitary system, in which the central authorities hold primacy to the extent even of redesigning or abolishing regional and local units of government at will’.

This is the third pamphlet in a series which uses federalism as an analytical framework to discuss the developing constitutional structure of the UK.
