Engaging Citizens in Post-conflict Reconstruction: Decentralization for Participatory Governance

As earlier chapters have noted, post-conflict reconstruction is most successful when all segments of society are engaged in the process. Therefore, as part of their efforts to rebuild robust public administration systems, post-conflict countries must seek to involve citizens in decision-making. One key strategy in this regard is decentralization—the transfer of powers, functions, responsibilities and resources from the central government to local authorities or other subnational entities. In practical terms, decentralization involves striking a balance between the claims of the periphery and the demands of the centre.
