How to Finance a State? Revenue Mobilisation and Reforms in Developing Countries

How to Finance a State? Revenue Mobilisation and Reforms in Developing Countries

Unfortunately this course is cancelled.

If you are interested in development politics, you have to be interested in the question of financing; where is the money going to come from, and does it make a difference where they come from? Many developing countries, for example, lack funding to support basic education, infrastructure, and health care. The Covid-19 crisis has highlighted the need for better health facilities and equipment but also demonstrated how financially fragile many developing countries are with limited revenue and declining growth rates. In other words, many developing countries face a situation with a greater need for financing but less money. This seminar will focus on the pressing issue of state financing in a development context.
