Abstract

The subnational political units, in the age of globalisation are emerging as the principal actors in the global economy. With this the location or site of governance is changing. Thus the need is to situate the debate on decentralization in context of globalization. It has been argued that 'how decentralization is designed' depends on 'why decentralization is being carried out'.

Keywords: globalization, glocalization, decentralization, centralization, localization
