Local Politics, Governance and Public Goods in Southeast Asia

    Project Details

    Description

    This project investigates how variations in local government across four Southeast Asian states affect the delivery of critical public goods - infrastructure and healthcare - to citizens. It does so by comparing 'local governance regimes' across 16 municipalities in Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand. Expected outcomes include better understanding of how varying political dynamics can shape state-citizen interactions at the local level, and affect how and whether citizens gain access to critical services. The findings will enhance understanding of local politics, a topic of growing scholarly interest, and also benefit Australian and other policy makers seeking to design better development interventions.
