Local Public Finance in Europe: Publications and Presentations

This research intends to create benefits for as the practice as the academic community. It wants to broaden the knowledge about local public finances to foster international discussions along policy makers but also wants to contribute to scientific discourses on issues like fiscal federalism or regulation. 

Referring to this, we come up with a variance of publications like policy briefs, conference papers, academic and practitioner journals and an edited volume. Please find the current ones mentioned below. Many more are in progress.
