SWSA3235 DECENTRALISATION AND LOCAL GOVERNANCE
To be updated by the Lecturer
After two decades of stagnation, governments in Africa have demonstrated new commitment to reforms that contribute to national development. Key among these include; decentralization and democratization that have encouraged greater autonomy to public institutions and development of sectors in Africa. This course will introduce students to the historical development of the Decentralization policy in Uganda and selected African countries. In Uganda, the course will clearly explore the rationale for decentralization, forms and implementation challenges. It will also focus on the relationship between decentralization and development in the local governments, legal and institutional frameworks amidst the rising levels of corruption in the Country.
