The purpose in both cases was not only for the researchers to share new theoretical and empirical findings with practitioners, but also for practitioners and policymakers to give feedback to the scholars and share their own insights based on their work in the field.Based on the research and discussion at the meeting, we will be working to put out an edited volume of papers that bring together the newest research, policy ideas and critiques of decentralization.
