Global Times and Federal Concern

This book is the outcome of that quest and inquiry. Both Federalism and the realm of theories of International Relations are in constant process of change. They are needed - the former at the level of apparatus to provide for functioning of the two levels of government, while the latter for deciphering a meaningful note from the Foreign Affairs at the International Realm. The work goes in an ascending order. It begins with conceptual clarification, followed by case studies and comparative contrast. It is a modest attempt to understand International Relations theories in the practice of foreign affairs, looking at it from the federal aspect particularly in the treaty making aspect and the interplay of centre-state interaction in this realm. It aims to move along the different paradigms- Federalism, Foreign Affairs and International Relations theories. It was challenging but intellectually stimulating.
