The Current State of Federalism Studies in Canada (2000-2007): A Quantitative and Qualitative Review of the Scholarly Literature

by Patrick Fafard, François Rocher


Federalism has been the subject of study and debate among Canadian public policy researchers and decision-makers for many years.  However, in recent years, while the number of studies of federalism and federation remains high, the focus of research has changed.  In The Current State of Federalism Studies in Canada (2000-2007):  A Quantitative and Qualitative Review of the Scholarly Literature, CPRN Research Fellow Patrick Fafard and François Rocher, both of the University of Ottawa, assess the state of federalism studies in Canada.  Their analysis combines a quantitative analysis of research on Canadian federalism produced from 2000 to 2007, with a qualitative assessment based on 16 key informant interviews with scholars from various disciplines.
