(p.213) Chapter 14 Multilevel Social Democracy: Centralisation and Decentralisation
The Crisis of Social Democracy in Europe

Michael Keating

Edinburgh University Press

For much of the twentieth century, social democracy was associated with a strong and centralised state, able to wield the levers of power for progressive aims. Yet earlier traditions were often local and regional. State transformation and rescaling have removed from the nation-state many of the instruments for social and economic management, while decentralisation has vested significant powers at local and regional levels. Social and economic struggles take place at a variety of spatial scales. The author looks at how social democracy and social democratic compromises can develop at the sub-state level.
