ICLD’s Knowledge Centre has funded a long list of research projects in the fields of local democracy, local self-governance, and decentralisation at both Swedish and foreign universities, ever since it was founded.
ICLD’s aims, in providing this support, to help augment our knowledge of the potential extant and the challenges faced when working with democracy at a local level. ICLD prioritises projects that support local operatives in the efforts to promote democratic development.
All of the research projects funded result in at least one Research report. All of the Research reports written within the framework of the projects financed by ICLD are available from our project database.
