HCSA/SAI at the IACFS Annual Conference on Comparative Federalism
Heidelberg Centre South Asia and the Branch Office of South Asia Institute in New Delhi participated in and supported the International Association of Centres for Federal Studies (IACFS) Annual Conference on The Value of Comparative Federalism: The Legacy of Ronald L. Watts”. The conference was hosted by Centre for Multilevel Federalism (CMF), Institute of Social Sciences (ISS), and took place between 16-18 November, 2016.

Prof. Balveer Arora, Chairman, Centre for Multilevel Federalism, New Delhi and Prof. Nico Steytler, President, Dullah Omar Institute, University of Western Cape South Africa and the outgoing President of IACFS, were the conveners of this international conference. Prof. Francesco Palermo (EURAC Institute for Studies on Federalism and Regionalism, Bozen, Italy) was elected as the new President. The three-day conference revolved around key aspects of federalism - accommodating diversities, resource and fiscal federal governance, and asymmetrical federalism.

The annual conference paid tribute to the intellectual legacy of Prof. Ronald Watts, one of the founding fathers of the IACFS. Prof. Watts had served as Director of the Institute of Intergovernmental Relations, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada and Senior Adviser to the federal government of Canada on constitutional affairs. He was consultant to governments all over the world. The 2016 IACFS conference in Delhi was a special occasion to commemorate Prof. Watts' pioneering works on the comparative study of federal political systems.

Radu Carciumaru (Resident Representative, Heidelberg Centre South Asia, New Delhi) gave a presentation on Federalism in Bosnia-Herzegovina within the panel on Country Trend Reports, presided over by Prof. Eva Maria Belser (Institute of Federalism, Fribourg University, Switzerland).
