The Institute of Intergovernmental Relations and the Canadian Network of Federalism Studies are pleased to present:
'Globalization, Multilevel Governance and Democracy: Continental, Comparative and Global Perspectives.' May 3-4, 2002.
Regional and global integration is challenging the capacity of federal countries like Canada to achieve their own independent domestic and foreign policy objectives. Participants will investigate multilevel governance - the condition wherein power and institutionalized decision-making authority is distributed among national, sub-national and supra-national bodies - as a strategy for confronting this challenge in an effective, but also democratic, manner. Conference participants will examine how these issues play out in Canada, but will also explore parallel developments in multilevel governance from a broader North American, cross-regional and global perspective.
