New online platform sparks debate on federalism issues

50 Shades of Federalism, a new online platform is a project established in October 2017 at Canterbury Christ Church University to help inform debate about many issues related to federalism. Having identified five main themes – Case Studies, Conflict Resolution, Diversity Management, Policies and Theory – the central aim of this project is to provide succinct, easy accessible, high quality research articles free of charge.

The project is a partnership between the Politics and International Relations programme at Canterbury Christ Church University and the Canada Research Chair in Quebec and Canadian Studies (CREQC) at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).

The articles will feature discussions on a number of abstract and historical issues, as well as illuminate some of the contemporary dynamics in debates on federalism. Given that the study of federalism straddles a variety of disciplines, the hosts of 50 Shades of Federalism seek to pursue a multidisciplinary approach with contributions from politician scientists, theorists and constitutional lawyers, some of whom are leading scholars in the field.

Articles, written by some of the leading scholars and practitioners in the field, will be published on a weekly basis.
