Abstract: Local government amalgamation, frequently also referred to as council consolidation and municipal mergers, whereby small local authorities are subsumed into larger entities, has often been used as a means of improving the operation of municipalities and enhancing their financial viability. However, empirical evidence on the impact of mergers is mixed. This Symposium focuses on the effects of amalgamation on the financial sustainability of local government.
