Wayenberg

Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing, Inc. Year: 2010

"This book provides solid academic evidence of a lively debate and dialogue between US and EU scholars about multi-level governance (MLG) and intergovernmental relations (IGR). Beyond the contingencies of the terms and the path dependency of their historical developments, there are elements of convergence and overlap. This publication is a good example of how academic transatlantic dialogues result in a stronger understanding of the premises of our concepts, and of the functioning of our systems."
