Global interdependencies, subnational state capacity and sustainable development
This project explores the nexus between global interdependencies, subnational state capacity and sustainable development. Three related perspectives will be gradually developed. The analysis examines 1) the role of subnational state capacity for social development; 2) the relation between global interdependencies and subnational state capacity; and 3) the link between global interdependencies and sustainable development. These perspectives will be analyzed by falling back on empirical evidence from Peru and Bolivia. Besides developing conceptual insights the work introduces methodological tools, particularly useful to the study of subnational state capacity and social development.
