Abstract: This book examines the concept of multi-level governance by separating out structural factors and relational factors that affect governance. Using case studies from Canada, the UK and Europe, the book shows that multi-level governance processes are adversely affected by unclear rules of the game and poor definition of relations between levels. The book shows the relationship between governance and power, the policy process and implementation of policy on the ground and presents a new framework for understanding multi-level governance processes.
