Does federalism lead to the separation of single states?
Federalism involves a great deal of **power sharing**, both at administrative and governmental levels. Federalism accepts the concept called '***right to self determination***' to varying degrees, including '***the right to secession***'. The right to secession has long created doubt in the minds of many that federalism leads to separatism. Is there significant evidence to substantiate the proposition that **federalism** inevitably leads to the separation of single states?
