The Global Dialogue Project

The Global Dialogue on Federalism program was a joint initiative of the IACFS and the Forum of Federations. The program brought together practitioners, scholars, and young professionals of federalism from all parts of the world, to share their experiences and academic research, built a growing network of people with interests in federal ideas, and made available an accessible body of comparative information and knowledge about current and emerging issues in federalism and federal political systems.

Program components included (1) country roundtables, (2) international roundtables, and (3) publication launches.

A tangible and lasting product of the Dialogue was a series of volumes covering selected themes from the perspective of a range of different federal political systems. Each volume was preceded by a short summary booklet, in English or French, also available from the publisher.
