Family matters: The interplay between formal and informal incentives for accountability in Mali’s local communities

The Malian government developed and implemented an ambitious decentralisation programme in the 1990s. Thousands of villages were regrouped into 703 municipalities and municipal councillors were elected. The central government was to transfer a considerable amount of authority and resources to these newly established municipal councils. The reforms were expected to strengthen local accountability and consequently spearhead local economic development and enhance local democracy.
