The theory and concept of multi-level governance is a fairly recent one, emerging with the deepening integration of the European Union in the early 1990s and the development of free trade agreements around the world. Multi-level governance expands on traditional approaches, such as neo-institutionalism and multinational federalism, by offering a better understanding of the role of the state, regions, and provinces. In this book, Guy Lachapelle and Pablo Oñate analyze the changes that have taken place as well as those that might take place in the future in the many levels of governance.
