Belgian federal characteristics are connected to Belgian history. Belgium's federalism, in fact, tells the history of a difficult coexistence between the Flemish and the Walloons. So, we can speculate that there exists a federalism "á la belge", that in recent time has been pressed by a strong dynamic centrifuge power. The last years have seen an escalation of independent Flemish claims, connected to the consolidation of the electoral vote obtained by the nationalist party. Paradoxically, nevertheless the root of the independent position has not led to the secessionist hypothesis. Rather to imagine a conversion of Belgium to a confederal system "sui generis".
