PSIA Seminar: Local Government Reforms in Europe in 21st Century

April 10 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

About the Event:

During the last two decades, we have witnessed an intensification of local government reforms in nearly 20 European countries. The lecture will focus on mapping territorial administrative reforms in Europe after 2000; discussing the dominant discourse of the reforms, explaining what the main arguments for their implementation have been; analyzing the relationship between territorial boundary reforms and other dimensions of decentralization (local autonomy); summarizing what academic research can tell us about actual outcomes of the reforms (do they meet expectations of the reformers?) as well as what methodological difficulties researchers encounter in assessing the actual impacts.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Pawel Swianiewicz is Professor of Economics at University of Warsaw, Head of the Department of Local Development and Policy at the Faculty of Geography and Regional Studies.
