Local Government in Cape Verde 1970–2020
Author / Authors:
Part of the Local and Urban Governance book series (LUG)
The chapter examines the system of local government in Cape Verde, discusses the decentralization process in the country since the independence, seen as an incremental process of institutional capacity building at the sub-national level, and compares it to other Lusophone African states. The chapter thus seeks to explore the nature of the current local government system in Cape Verde, how it changed over the years, since the independence, and how these changes affected the role of local government in the governance of cities.
