The Federal system-Development and problems of states and capital

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The historical development of territorialism in Germany influenced the specific federalism of the Federal Republic, following the division of Germany after 1945. The problems of regional disparity among the states, which differ greatly in size and capabilities are reflected in plans for reform and equalization. Because of the special status of Berlin and the limited urban position of Bonn, which was intended to be only the provisional capital, the leading functions of the country are highly decentralized. The role of strong regional centers in the settlement system of the Federal Republic combines with the lively traditions of German regionalism. (l'A.).
