    Federalism is a means of ensuring peace, stability and mutual accommodation in countries that have territorially concentrated differences of identity, ethnicity, religion or language. Federalism, especially in large or diverse countries, can also improve service delivery . Federalism emerged as an important instrument of nation/state building after the collapse of European colonial empires in the immediate post World War II period (Watts a: 2). In this respect, many post-colonial multi-ethnic countries of Asia and Africa adopted federalism.1 Even if several of these federations failed in their infancy.

    Federalism is a political concept used to describe a system of government in which sovereignty is constitutionally divided between a central governing authority and constituent political units such as the states in South Sudan. In comparing decentralization or devolution with federalism it can be observed that there is a fundamental difference. As nouns the difference between federalism and decentralization is that federalism is of (l) (l) in which (l) is (l) between a (l) (l) and a number of (l) with delimited self-governing authority while decentralization is the action of decentralizing, or the state of being decentralized.

    The authors of this book employ a qualitative approach, referred to as “decision space analysis,” to study federalism and health care policy. The authors define the degree of decentralization and federalism in terms of how much decision space sub-central jurisdictions manage to hold onto. Q.3 Point out one feature in the practice of federalism in India that is similar to and one feature that is different from that of Belgium. (i) Similar Feature: Both Belgium and India have a three – tier government. (ii) Different Feature: In Belgium there is a community government as the third tier, while we have a local self- government (not based on races/castes) in India as the third.

Besides decentralization to executive agencies and social organizations, public management reform involves devolution to sub-national units of activities and the corresponding fiscal resources to finance them. It involves also making public managers more autonomous and more accountable.

In synthesis, decentralization–delegating authority to lower levels–is crucial to. Going against this representation and restricting the rights of its citizens at the local level by giving more power to provinces means distorting the principle of decentralisation and federalism.

This might be convenient for short-term partisan interests, but does not meet expectations in the long run. The evolution of federal and decentralized systems has been paralleled by the emergence of new issues, such as environmental protection, the sharing of natural resources among levels of government, corruption and the impact of federalism and decentralization on national unity.

The Handbook also provides chapters on these topics. This book draws on the work of the OECD Fiscal Network and the discussions of its delegates, presenting a compilation of some of the most salient policy issues in fiscal federalism.
