Abstract

Intergovernmental relations are an important element in any politically decentralized system. But in the autonomic State there is a generalised perception that these relations present important deficits. The new Statutes of Autonomy and the changes carried out outside these reforms, like the appearance of the Conference of Presidents, bring up old and new problems regarding these relations in our system, which are even more remarkable in the light of Comparative Law and the experiences of neighbouring countries with a similar level of decentralization. The objective of this article is to identify the challenges and risks for intergovernmental relations in the face of the (current) developments of the Statutes of Autonomy and the possibility of a (eventual) scenery of constitutional reform.
