It covers traditional topics of local public management, local revenue administration with special emphasis on property tax administration, local budgeting and accounting, and methods of capital finance. Newer topics covered include political economy of local government, alternate service delivery framework for local service provision, performance budgeting, fiscal rules for local fiscal discipline, local government integrity and performance accountability, and country rank based upon relative importance and political, fiscal and administrative autonomy of local governments.
