Division of Powers
Division of Powers is the first analysis in its kind. It provides an overview of levels of institutional and fiscal decentralisation in all EU countries, (potential) candidate and Eastern Partnership countries (see for a list of featured countries). It shows the legal bases for the various governance structures in the respective countries. Quantitative and qualitative data allow for cross-national comparisons in the most important policy areas. An interactive map provides additional information on systems of multilevel governance and subsidiarity mechanisms in each country
