Conference:Effecting Real Change in Local Governance: Perspectives for Social Democratic Policies
Date: 19 – 22 November 2009
Venue: Parkroyal, Penang, Malaysia
The conference continues the process of strengthening political groups in the region committed to the basic values of social democracy that started with the first meeting of the network in Manila in May 2009. At the conference, an exchange and identification of local governance practices that both shape the approach to participatory politics and the delivery of services and public goods will describe the sessions. Sharing on how these local governance practices contribute to the building of progressive political parties along social-democratic lines will also be facilitated.
