Europe's Working Regional Autonomies-A Comparative Analysis (2008) / Thomas Benedikter / Society for Threatened Peoples
Europe's working territorial autonomies share numerous common features, but on the other hand reflect also differences corresponding to their different genesis, development, geographical location, ethnic composition and political context. Autonomies usually are institutional and procedural systems based on complex legal provisions starting from the basic autonomy statute or constitutional law and coming to enactment laws and decrees embracing the legal provisions approved and adapted by the autonomous institutions.

Development Research Centre on Citizenship, Participation and Accountability
This archive site is highly recommended as a starting point for research. It enables users to search by keyword, and to browse by country or theme. Almost 450 resources are now available on the archive website of the Development Research Centre on Citizenship, Participation and Accountability. Citizenship DRC was an experiment in global research. In 2001, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded a coordinating team, based at the Institute of Development Studies, to assemble a research consortium to investigate how citizens hold institutions to account and claim their rights. By giving researchers from both the north and south greater independence, this approach was intended to support long-term research with the objectives of generating new knowledge, disseminating this widely to decision-makers and practitioners, and building the capacity of partner institutions to carry out high-quality research, communication and policy engagement. Over a decade, the Citizenship DRC built a network of researchers, policy-makers, practitioners and activists and collected more than 150 empirically grounded case studies that examine how citizen action and participation shape states and societies. A new summary report outlines the findings of the Centre's ten years of collaborative research.
