about this item

Originating in European Union studies, the term multi-level governance (MLG) is commonly used to describe politics and policy-making in a range of settings. Bache and Flinders believe the term multi-level governance (MLG) risks becoming threadbare. Focusing their collection around the work of two authors--Gary Marks and Liesbet Hooghe--who have led the field in the conceptual development of MLG, they cite three broad waves of scholarship: the first relates primarily to MLG as characterized by Marks to capture the changing dynamics of intergovernmental relations in Europe; the second offers continuity and change in the sense of stepping back from analyzing the European project and instead focusing more broadly on the dispersal of governing authority across multiple centers; the third is concerned with those scholars who have attempted to make the work of Hooghe and Marks stretch into new areas, either geographically or in relation to policy fields). Bache and Flinders use the themes of conceptual development, regions and democracy in volume I, and cohesion, climate change and other applications in volume II. Thirty-three chapters are divided into three parts: multi-level governance: conceptual development; multi-level governance: regions; multi-level governance: democracy.
