Manchester University Press

This chapter explores the system of intergovernmental relations and tries to determine if it functions as a vehicle for powersharing in state European Union (EU) decisions. It takes a look at the adaptations within Spain and the effectiveness of the channels for Basque participation in state decisions on EU matters. It also examines the Basque involvement in state intergovernmental and parliamentary bodies, and then discusses the importance of informal links between political parties ruling in multiple territorial arenas.

Keywords:   system of intergovernmental relations, powersharing, state EU decisions, Basque participation, channels, Basque involvement, territorial arenas, political parties
