Question Description

As we have seen through our readings, governments differ on where the power of the state should be held.

Unitary systems concentrate the power within the central government and little or no authority is granted to the component areas. In contrast, federal systems allow first-order civil divisions to have some autonomy, while the central government maintains authority over some areas.

Take a moment to compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of each system.This discussion question focuses on federalism v. the unitary system.

Along with your textbook reading for the week, here's some additional reading to consider about federalism v. the unitary system:

Pietro S. Nivola, "Why Federalism Matters," Brookings Policy Brief Series, October 1, 2005.
