Your price will be calculated once added to the cart

The conversation amongst academics, researchers, and economists on the decentralization – development nexus has spiked during the past decade. Much is at stake when speaking of decentralization today. How far can decentralization go in helping nations and regions prosper?  How better are centralized political and economic institutions in absorbing shocks, in comparison to their local counterparts? This talk aims to answer these questions and more. We will unpack the different ways through which decentralization contributes to development and broader politico-economic structures, with a focus on Lebanon. For the Lebanese case, Hussein will speak about the intersection between local public finance (such as spending and revenue structures) and economic development.

About the RSA

The Regional Studies Association works with its international membership to facilitate the highest standards of theoretical development, empirical analysis and policy debate of issues at this sub-national scale, incorporating both the urban and rural and different conceptions of space such as city-regions and interstitial spaces. We are, for example, interested in issues of economic development and growth, conceptions of territory and its governance and in thorny problems of equity and injustice.
