In this political science course you will learn about the twin concepts of federalism and decentralization. You will develop an understanding of the core ideas that federalism and decentralization rest on, and study the building blocks that make them both work. Following a general overview of both federalism and decentralization, we will examine a number of case-studies from Africa where federalism and decentralization have been changing the continent’s political landscape in the last twenty years, coinciding with unprecedented levels of economic growth. What is federalism and how is it different from decentralization? What are the core ideas behind these concepts? Do federalism and decentralization enhance democracy, governance and diversity? Is that why virtually all countries south of the Sahara are now either federal or decentralized? We will be looking at Africa's track-record in order to answer these questions. By the end of the course, you will have acquired a general knowledge of federalism/decentralization and additional empirical knowledge of a number of African cases. Upon completion you will also acquire the ability to unpack and understand a variety of potential consequences of federalism/decentralization reforms in the developing world....

An exellent course which gave me a comprehensive, nuanced insight into devolution of power in African countries. Very well presented, interesting content and very good assignment.

I enjoyed listening to Jan who clearly has a passion for what he is doing. However, I found the course very theoretical with to little reference to the practice. I have worked quite a bit on fiscal decentralisation in Africa and was looking for more concrete examples of where thing go well and where not (even if it doesn't go into details). Even the case studies were in many points superficial and theoretical. It is important to show the foundation and idea behind decentralisation processes, but I would have appreciated to learn more about the other side of the coin, the actual implementation. Even if this means to reduce the number of case studies and go a bit deeper into one countries' experience.

Thank you anyway!
