Introduction

Three days seminar on: "Decentralized Governance and Development – Promises, Performance and Prospects" Department of Economics, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi-110025

 
January 31, 2005
 
Dear Sir/ Madam,
 
The proposed seminar on: "Decentralized Governance and Development – Promises, Performance and Prospects" has been re-scheduled. It will be now held from 17th March to 19th March 2005.
 
The main objective of this seminar is to examine and evaluate the decentralized development strategies against the backdrop of the constitutional (73rd and 74th amendment) acts. In the light of the recent developments and experiences this review is extremely warranted both at the level of theory and policy. There is need for assessing the performance in the light of promises. This shall help in appreciating the problems and challenges better. In this exercise we plan to involve all stakeholders for an informed debate and assessment. A dispassionate attempt shall be made to prepare an agenda for decentralized development. This agenda will be circulated for eliciting further comments and reviews from a larger constituency of the interested intellectuals, administrators, policy makers, NGOs and target groups. In the light of this feedback the agenda will be revised and published for wide dissemination and action. The proceedings of the seminar will also be published in a book form.
 
We solicit your participation in our seminar and request you to please write a paper on any of the enclosed topics. In case it is not possible for you to contribute a paper kindly let us know whether it will be possible for you to spare some time for our seminar and enrich us with your expertise. Looking forward for your cooperation and good wishes. For further information please contact:
