Previous publications in this project demonstrated that state-level administrative systems were affected by intergovernmental interaction. It is important to stress that the notion of intergovernmentalism involves both the exchange between various national states and the exchange between territorial levels within the state. The increased importance of these two types of intergovernmental exchange raises two important questions. The first is whether the available tools for comparative analysis of civil service systems are still adequate. The second is whether the national state is still the most appropriate level of analysis for understanding the nature and dynamics of contemporary governance.
