“The course content was very comprehensive and the programme in general was very valuable to me.
“I applied for the summercourse on Decentralisation and Local Governance because I want to learn more about the mechanisms of the decentralisation process and its impact on the effectiveness of governance systems in serving citizens. I would also like to learn more about the political economy around decentralisation. I hope that this course helps me to design better programmes and that it brings more structure in my thinking around my agency’s governance programme strategy.”
“I really liked the wide variety of participants from different backgrounds. From government officials, to NGOs and donor agencies; it was an incredible interesting mix of people. Sharing real life experiences made the course content more real and applicable. In addition, I learnt how complex the implications of decentralisation are and the nuances involved in promoting it.”
