Is the Prefect an exception, surviving only in France and some countries influenced by Napoleon? No! This book tells the varied stories of the resilience, in most European States and under different names, of the prefectoral institution. It is the first comparative book in English studying these territorial administrators who have a go-between role in centre-periphery relations and a nodal role in territorial governance. Gathering a multidisciplinary team of scholars under the auspices of the European Group for Public Administration, this volume offers a fine-grained analysis of 17 national cases, examines cross-country data, and proposes a theoretical frame made of a Weberian ideal-type with three variants, to better comprehend and explain the permanence and changes of the prefectoral figure.

The self-legitimization of the prefectoral corps’ members working within French core ministries. - Part 4. Role and Power. - Chapter 11. Nodality in Question. The Case of a French Regional Prefecture in the Implementation of European Union Structural Funds. - Chapter 12. The County Governor in Sweden. A regional actor resisting change. - Chapter 13.
