Decentralization and popular democracy: Governance from below in Bolivia
Chichester Lecture Theatre, University of Sussex
About the lecture
Decentralization is meant to deepen democracy, improve public services, and make government more accountable. But evidence from across the globe is contradictory. Is it empty fashion and or/a giant mistake?
Drawing on evidence from his new book, Decentralization and popular democracy: Governance from below in Bolivia, Jean-Paul Faguet will explore these issues in more detail in his Sussex Development Lecture.
About the speaker
Dr. Jean-Paul Faguet is the Reader in the Political Economy of Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he heads the MSc in Development Management. He is also Chair of the Decentralization Task Force of the Initiative for Policy Dialogue at Columbia University.
