EDP contributes to Local Government thinking

The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) and Government and Public Policy (GAPP), the think tank focused on practical, feasible solutions for governance questions, co-hosted a conference to mark 25 years of local government in November 2020.

The primary goal of this conference was to bring together current and former local government practitioners, senior members of the national and provincial SALGA leadership, members of Cabinet, independent analysts, and strategic entities, to discuss the fundamental assumptions that informed the constitution of this sphere of public authority.

Andrew Boraine of the EDP contributed in two presentations. Click below for his speaker notes on the origins and impact of the local government transition process in South Africa, and on changing the public sector institutional culture.

Media coverage of the conference covered these topics as well.
