Abstract
Recent years have brought new challenges to contemporary democratic societies, which seem to be submerged in a crisis widely acknowledged. Our paper aims to consider potential solutions to these problems, reassessing the benefits of federalism in diverse matters, such as the control of abuses of power, the promotion of popular involvement in the decision-making process, the reappraisal of the notion of citizenship, the reorganization of parties, the protection of minorities and adaptation to globalization.
