Decentralisation and recentralisation processes in Latin America

On 25 November, the Chilean Institute of Municipal Studies (ICHEM) of the Autonomous University of Chile organised the seminar ‘Recentralisation? New approaches to sub-national government in Latin America’. The conference served as a meeting and discussion point for academics and professionals in the field of political and social sciences from Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, Argentina and Chile.


The event was held at a particularly intense moment for the debate on decentralisation in Chile, after the final presentation of the Report of the Development. The foreign experiences of Latin American countries that have already implemented similar reforms helped provide ideas for the process in Chile.
