Abstract and Keywords

The French state is increasingly exposed to new economic, social, and cultural logics. The growing power of local and regional authorities in the public policy process is one of the most striking features of the erosion of the Jacobin myth of the unity and indivisibility of the Republic. The governance paradigm has fundamentally shifted the terms of the debate and brought French analysis further into the mainstream of international and European local and regional studies. The object of this chapter is to understand precisely how the paradigmatic changes of the international territorial politics literature have impacted on the French research agenda on local and regional governments.

Keywords: local government, regions, decentralization, governance, political capacity
