Multi-level Governance



Oxford University Press

Ian Bache and Matthew Flinders assess the value of multi‐level governance in relation to British politics. A number of authors in this field have developed governance approaches, often in explicit counterpoint to the dominant framework for understanding British politics, the Westminster Model (WM). The governance literature points to challenges to state power in the context of the upwards, downwards, and sideways flows of competences discussed above. However, they argue that the related processes of devolution and decentralization have given added resonance to the ‘multi‐level’ dimension of governance within the territorial boundaries of the British State.
