    Abstract

    Since the transition to democracy in the late 1970s, Spain has undergone a process of deep decentralization and an incipient federalization. This article analyses the main features of such processes underlying the high level of home rule achieved by the 17 Comunidades Autonomas , when compared to other federal-like systems in the world. Accommodating Spain's secular diversity appears to be in line with the increasing role of meso life in the process of Europeanization.
