Who we are

DERNET, acronym from Political and Fiscal Decentralization Network, aims to organize conferences and international workshops, as well as other knowledge transfer activities (public reports, dissemination events and working groups). It was born in 2009 with the realization of the conference "jfjfjf" “International Conference on the Political and Economic Consequences of Decentralization”, which gave rise to a special issue in the journal “Environment and Planning: Government and Policy” (vol 29(2) 2011). In 2011, another conference on municipality fragmentation gave rise to the book: “The Challenge of local government size”, edited by Edward Elgar in 2013.
