Beyond Devolution and Decentralisation

This chapter addresses the theme of decentralisation and political capacity building in Brittany. Venturing inside the Brittany regional council provides an opportunity to investigate the functioning of the region as a political institution, and to explore the theme of public policy-making within Brittany. The discussion argues that the influence of the French regions (and Brittany in particular) is tied up with interdependent policy-making and the quality of horizontal and vertical relationships. The chapter's conclusion focuses upon the regional political space and the constraints and opportunities faced by governors in Brittany.
