Yesterday, Professor of the Political Economy of Development Programme and Co-Director of Development Management in the Department of International Development,  Jean-Paul Faguet,  launched the Spanish-language edition of his book, Decentralization and Popular Democracy: Governance from Below in Bolivia.

In the book, Jean-Paul Faguet combines broad econometric data with deep qualitative evidence to investigate the social underpinnings of governance. He shows how the interaction of civic groups and business interests determines the quality of local decision making.  In order to understand decentralization, Faguet argues, we must understand governance from the ground up. Drawing on his findings, he offers an evaluation of the potential benefits of decentralization and recommendations for structuring successful reform.

Professor Faguet will be launching the Spanish-language edition of his book at the following places:

The book with 3 expert discussants, at the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung-Bolivia, La Paz, Bolivia, Tuesday 30 May,  7pm.

The International Book Festival Santa Cruz, Bolivia, at  in the Wolfgang Goethe Salon, Thursday 1 June, 6pm.

All welcome!

You can download the Spanish-language version of the book here.

 


Professor Jean-Paul Faguet works at the frontier between economics and politics, using quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate the institutions and organizational forms that underpin development. Specific fields include political economy, comparative politics, institutional economics, and development economics.
