1.  Local Public Sector Reforms: An International Comparison (ISCH COST Action IS1207)

The project:

The Action “Local Public Sector Reforms: An International Comparison (‘LocRef’)” has started work on March 28th 2013.  ‘LocRef’ is a  European research network on local public sector reforms with more than 300 senior and early stage researchers in 32 countries. Based on a shared European perspective, it brings together researchers and practitioners of all stages of local public sector reforms in order to jointly assess the hitherto scattered and dispersed information bases on local public sector reforms, to generate new comparative knowledge, and develop policy-relevant frameworks for the design of future modernization processes in Europe.


The LocREf project  is funded  by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) within the EU FP7 framework. COST is a long-term international network for cooperation in science and technology [for more information click here].
