Examples and lessons from three-tier federalism
This rapid review synthesises findings from academic, practitioner, and policy literature. Whilst there is a large body of literature that analyses various aspects of federalism, authors seldom focus on the experience of countries which have implemented this particular three-tier structure. Those studies that do address this area tend to be found either in peer-reviewed academic journals or as part of edited collections published by large international development organisations. The literature surveyed for this report did not incorporate gender concerns.
