The Forum’s Policy Programs research the dynamics between federalism and devolved governance and the topics below.
Through its Policy Programs, the Forum develops its network of multi-level governance experts, and acts as a hub for knowledge exchange between researches and governance practitioners globally. In the development of its network, and particularly its Policy Program activities, the Forum aims to partner with the leading academic and governmental research institutes on federal and decentralized governance in countries around the world. In leveraging the Forum network, Policy Programs are thus uniquely able to combine theoretical knowledge of the practice of multilevel governance with practical experience. They also provide and develop invaluable comparative international experiences supporting both the development of solutions to multilevel governance challenges, and the overall body of knowledge in the field.
