Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Historically, in many European countries political-institutional decentralization towards the regional level of government has been the subject of clashes, sometimes heated, among the protagonists of national political life. This volume aims to illustrate how in particular in Italy, France and Great Britain the inter-party competition is intertwined with the development of regional institutions, which is summarized here. The analysis of the evolution of the programmatic positions and of the strategies of the main parties highlights the growing relevance for the political class of factors such as the electoral success of regionalist formations and the value of regional institutions in terms of office as well as policy. Factors that have led to a general convergence in favor of regionalization from which only some parties, those at the extremes of the political spectrum, seem to be immune. Today in these three countries the main political formations, even those once hostile to decentralization, have in fact become its supporters and, in some cases, also effective supporters.
