What is a unitary state? In a unit ary gove rnment, the powers of the government are not distributed between the center a nd the states under the consti tution . Power, in such cases, is concentrated in the centre only. It depends upon the will of the central government to give some powers to local governments for b_ rin~ing abou~ efficiency in the government. There is , therefore, nf question of const1tut1onal conflicts betw een the centre and the states, because constitutionally the central g ov ernment is all powerful . According to Profe ss or Willoughby, "In unitary government all the powers of government are conf erred in the first instance upon a si ngle central government and that government is le ft in complete fr ee dom to effect such a d is tribution of these pow er s, territorially as in it s opinion is wise". We observe a number of unitary governments in countries like England, Japan, Italy , Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, France, Italy, Bangladesh etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
