It is our pleasure to announce the first edition of the
 
INTERNATIONAL WINTER SCHOOL ON FEDERALISM AND GOVERNANCE - 
LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN FEDERAL AND REGIONAL SYSTEMS
 
Not only in Europe, but all over the world local government faces
complex challenges that question its traditional status in multi-level
governance systems and indeed request a redefinition of its role. Engage
in an ongoing worldwide dialogue on the future of local government in
federal and regional systems!

A transnational project of the Institute for Studies on Federalism and
Regionalism, EURAC, Bolzano/Bozen (Italy), the Faculty of Law and the
School of Political Science and Sociology of the University of Innsbruck
(Austria). It takes place under the auspices of the Secretary General of
the Council of Europe. The Winter School analyzes the phenomena of
federalism, regionalism and multi-level governance from a legal and a
political science perspective. Every edition pays special attention to a
particular topic, which is approached
in detail by legal scholars, political scientists and practitioners. 
 
In the first edition in February 2010 the focus will be on the role of
local government in federal and regional systems. The programme
includes: 
Multi-level-governance - local government in international,
supranational and comparative perspective - local self-government -
regional government - intergovernmental relations in compound systems - 
policies in multi-layered systems - fiscal federalism.
 
Participants will have the opportunity to present a working paper during
the Winter School. The best papers will be considered for publication.
