About the product

As many countries around the world grapple with political and market reform, lively debate is growing around questions concerning the conditions under which decentralization policies are called for, which policies and strategies work and how transferable they are. This study looks at the possibilities for and limitations of decentralization in industrialized, developing and former Eastern Bloc countries. It traces the decentralization experiences under the themes of political and administrative development, governance and services, services and revenues and urban and regional dimensions.
