 Multilevel Governance (MLG)

Multilevel Governance (MLG)

This niche area focuses on the different levels of government (1) local/municipal/traditional, (2) provincial/federal member state, (3) national, and (4) transnational/international or global. The possible tensions within and between these levels of government, but also the possibilities of cooperation, are investigated on a practical level in an effort to solve social problems. On a theoretical level the focus area investigates inter alia whether politics, democracy and constitutions are possible on these different levels of government, that is, it raises questions about the nature of the political, of the demos, and of the constitution in the 21
st Century. ​
