Belgium’s asymmetric federalism faced with the pandemic crisis – This essay analyses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Belgian federalism. In many respects, the pandemic crisis has highlighted the inherent paradox of Belgium’s dual federalism. In spite of the principle of the exclusivity of competences, the federal government and the regional and community governments have been somewhat forced to cooperate to face such an unprecedented challenge. Besides, the Covid-19 pandemic has raised questions on what a seventh round of institutional reforms should entail, possibly including a change of direction in Belgium’s federalizing process.

Abstract

Belgium’s asymmetric federalism faced with the pandemic crisis – This essay analyses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Belgian federalism. In many respects, the pandemic crisis has highlighted the inherent paradox of Belgium’s dual federalism. In spite of the principle of the exclusivity of competences, the federal government and the regional and community governments have been somewhat forced to cooperate to face such an unprecedented challenge. Besides, the Covid-19 pandemic has raised questions on what a seventh round of institutional reforms should entail, possibly including a change of direction in Belgium’s federalizing process.
