A System Dynamics Model For A New Perspective on The Colombia Decentralisation Process Reform

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Since the mid 80's, Colombia has developed a full decentralisation process in order to achieve better results in local governments. However, the performance hasn't been the best. Colombia shows a worrying situation, high levels of poverty, violence, and corruption and a low quality of life. An additional element is that the Colombian decentralisation model has been dominated by an economical approach. This means that the policies have been based on statistical and econometric analysis. But it lacks a systemic view. The aim of this paper is to show how system dynamics may complement the public policy analysis in Colombia, in particular the intergovernmental and
decentralisation policy design. To achieve this purpose, the project develops a system dynamics model around the problem mentioned above, specifically its focuses in the financial transfers policy and its problems associated with it.
