    Federalism, federation, devolution and federal devolution in Europe: some conceptual and empirical reflections in comparative perspective
    in Cuadernos Manuel Giménez Abad , n. 13, junio ,  2017 ,  10-24
    The principal purpose of this text is to analyse and to explore the conceptual meaning and empirical implications of federalism, federation, devolution and federal devolution in pursuit of clarity and understanding. There are important conceptual distinctions between these terms but that there have been and still are areas where they can be blurred and indistinct and can even overlap in practice. The analysis will raise many important questions about the relationship between the conceptual and the empirical worlds.
