Call for papers: Workshop on Attitudes to Decentralization in Multi-Level States

ECPR Joint Sessions, 8 to 12 April 2019, Mons, Belgium


While decentralization is an important political process in many countries, there is a lack knowledge regarding citizens’ attitudes to territorial scales of political life. The result of this void is that scholars and policy-makers lack a thorough sense of citizens’ attachment to the different territorial levels and to their preferences towards the different types of decentralization.


We thus seek to assemble studies that will further our understanding of citizens’ attitudes to decentralization.


Specifically, the workshop seeks papers that will explore


We anticipate that participants will employ a range of methodologies, including, but not limited to, the quantitative analysis of survey research, quantitative indicators of decentralisation, interviews with legislators, and content analysis of manifestos for parties competing in different electoral levels.
