Social Charter (2004), EFA Goals 2015 and Millennium
Development Goals represent people centered regional and global commitments.
Partnerships, inclusion and local governance are at the heart of action
The Conference Local Governance Texts and
Contexts: Perspectives from South Asia will be an opportunity
for a rich knowledge and experience exchange. The methodology adopted
will open the door to examining the problems in the sectors as well
for poverty alleviation, both economic and intellectual, of the
poor, emergent middle classes and indeed the rich.
It aims to bring the finest of thinkers, activists
and crafts persons engaged in decentralization, curriculum making,
social sciences and history to rethink education and local governance
for a post colonial liberation movement, societal regeneration and
optimization. This is a compelling requirement for our societies
to seriously take on board, twenty first century challenges.
