  2. Local Accountability and National Coordination in Fiscal Federalism

    Local Accountability and National Coordination in Fiscal Federalism

    Charles R. Hankla, Jorge Martinez-Vazquez, Raúl A. Ponce Rodríguez
    This book argues that fiscal federalism will consistently deliver on its governance promises only when democratic decentralization is combined with the integration of political parties. It formalizes this argument and, using new data on subnational political institutions, tests it with models of education, health, and infrastructure service delivery in 135 countries across 30 years. It also presents comparative case studies of Senegal and Nigeria. The book emphasizes that a “fine balance” in local governance can be achieved when integrated party structures compensate for the potential downsides of a decentralized state. Learn More
