Participation, representation and taxation in local governance in Angola
The projects' contribution will be to generate knowledge of one of the most crucial issues in Angolan local government and decentralisation debate: Are the evolving institutions at the interface of state and citizenry conducive to pro-poor local governance? The knowledge and consequent debate is necessary for policy-makers, civil society critics and activists, as well as to international "players", like donors and academics. Specific objectives are:
- Contributing to public debate in Angola, by publicising research findings, as well as to suggest reform options.
- Build pressure on an overly centralised state structure to promote citizen participation and representation at local level.
- Highlight theoretical knowledge and cross-country comparisons, and make them available for an Angolan audience, so as to think radically new in the country's efforts in decentralisation and local state building.
