This Guide is designed to offer insights into the critical elements that shape systems of good local governance in the South Caucasus region.
It also serves as a tool for local decision-makers and practitioners as they seek to learn more about models and practices of local democracy, particularly from an international comparative perspective.
The Guide is structured according to three main themes: local elections, political parties and citizens’ participation. These themes are explored along with an analysis of new local governance systems by independent experts from the region.
The Guide includes case studies on Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
