In 1981, the newly elected socialist government of France announced a "vast programme of decentralization". The reforms have changed the politico-administrative landscape of France. This volume asks what changes - if any - occurred and looks at the implications for French public policy-making.


'An extremely useful book both on French regional politics and on the increasingly multileveled policy-making process.' - Political Studies

'This collection of studies admirably crystallizes the contours and content of the debate surrounding regional reform in France and should therefore be a useful work to anyone with an interest in public policy processes and sub-national government, whether from a French of comparative European perspective.' - Regional and Federal Studies
