New LogoLink Research Initiative Focuses on Resources, Citizen Engagement and Democratic Local Governance

The main objectives of LogoLink?’s new ?“Research on Resources, Citizen Engagement and Democratic Local Governance?” initiative (RECITE) are: (1) to contribute to knowledge on an aspect of participation in local governance that has attracted limited policy interest to date; (2) to draw to the attention of governments and aid donors the importance of creating and resourcing spaces for participatory processes in fiscal decisions; and (3) to strengthen the capacities of LogoLink partners and other civil society groups to influence and participate in the most critical fiscal spaces.

The UK-based LogoLink is a global network of practitioners from civil society organizations, research institutions and governments working to deepen democracy through greater citizen participation in local governance.
