ICLD funds research projects in the fields of local democracy, local self-governance, and decentralisation at both Swedish and foreign universities.
Our aim, in providing this support, is to help increase our knowledge of the challenges and opportunities we face 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 here.
