Abstract

In Decentralization Good for Development? Perspectives from Academics and Policy Makers, editors Jean-Paul Faguet and Caroline Pöschl offer an exhaustive account of the positive and negative outcomes of decentralisation policies with insights drawn from both academics and practitioners who have implemented reform in government and international organisations. This dual approach does not offer one clear-cut answer or academic consensus on the relationship between decentralisation and development; rather, the book is a comprehensive and useful toolkit for those analysing the varied facets of this complex phenomenon, writes Florian Bon.
