Perspectives on Federalism


Edited by the Centre for Studies on Federalism


Perspectives on Federalism is an Open Access peer-reviewed journal, promoted by the Centre for Studies on Federalism. This initiative follows the Bibliographical Bulletin on Federalism’s success, with an average of 15000 individual visits a month. Perspectives on Federalism aims at becoming a leading journal on the subject, and an open forum for interdisciplinary debate about federalism at all levels of government: sub-national, national, and supra-national at both regional and global levels. 

Perspectives on Federalism is divided into three sections. Along with essays and review articles, which are common to all academic journal, it will also publish very short notes to provide information and updated comments about political, economic and legal issues in federal states, regional organizations, and international organizations at global level, whenever they are relevant to scholars of federalism. We hope scholars from around the world will contribute to this initiative, and we have provided a simple and immediate way to submit an essay, a review article or a note. 

Perspectives on Federalism will publish original contributions from different disciplinary viewpoints as the subject of federalism requires. Papers submitted will undergo a process of double blind review before eventually being accepted for publication.

The Centre for Studies on Federalism starts this project thanks to the commitment of a motivated international and interdisciplinary team of young scholars who constitute the editorial board. We count on the support of a scientific committee which lists colleagues with an established international reputation, who will be very helpful also in the peer review.  

Both the editorial board and the scientific committee are open to further contributions from scholars interested in this project. Please contact us for any further information about forms of support, and cooperation with Perspectives on Federalism.  
Editors: Roberto Castaldi and Giacomo Delledonne
