Brexit Neglects the Real Benefit of Devolution: Aggregation

Author post, Non Fiction

- May 31st, 2016

Connectography, Parag Khanna

Parag Khanna is a senior fellow at the Lee Kuan Yew School, and holds a PhD from the London School of Economics (LSE). His new book is Connectography: Mapping the Global Network Revolution (Orion Books).

The most powerful political force of our age is devolution. Since World War II, the number of independent states has nearly quadrupled from 50 to nearly 200. European empires, the Soviet Union, and the former Yugoslavia all split into dozens of independent states. From East Timor to South Sudan–not to mention Kurdistan and Palestine–the jackhammer of devolution continues its assault on sovereign unity. Not only is devolution a more universal aspiration than democracy, but as Scotland and Catalunya aptly demonstrate, democracy serves only to fuel devolution: When given the choice, cities and provinces are gravitating towards more autonomy and local self-rule.
