Multi-Level Polities — Institutions, Decision-Making, Parties and Party Systems

  • Irina Ştefuriuc
Part of the Comparative Territorial Politics book series (COMPTPOL)


This chapter presents the institutional and political background in Spain and Germany. It focuses on four main aspects spread over the same number of sections: the origins and evolution of the multi-level institutional arrangement that led to the different types of federalism; the institutional setting and the decision-making process; the political parties and the party systems at the national and regional levels; and finally, the stakes involved in governing at the regional level.
