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.

  • The United States Has Re-asserted its Moral Leadership by Declaring the Atrocities Against Rohingya as Genocide
    In March, the United States declared the actions of Myanmar’s military against the Rohingya to be a case of ‘genocide’. Even though the declaration does not trigger military action, Shaikh Abdur Rahman argues that it has a twofold significance: it validates the sufferings of the Rohingya people, and, equally importantly, it resurrects a moral imperative […]
  • Linkage between Gold and the Stock Market in India
    India is one of the biggest consumers of gold on the planet. Nufazil Altaf Ahangar shows that gold has been a better safe-haven asset for investors in the country in times of crisis than stocks and shares. He argues, therefore, that policy-makers should take steps to create a more efficient gold market in India.   […]
