What We Do
The Forum of Federations runs training and knowledge sharing programs to address governance challenges in existing and emerging federations, as well as in devolved and decentralized countries.
The Forum has an unparalleled global network of experts which can be rapidly tapped to provide expert counsel and support for countries tackling governance issues.
Policy and Research Programs:are aimed at facilitating knowledge exchange on topical public policy questions and on issues related to the management and reforms of federal systems. They are also aimed at building a comparative body of knowledge on contemporary, usually structural, themes of federal governance.
Development Assistance Programs: are aimed at strengthening democratic governance among practitioners and experts in emerging federations. We help practitioners to learn and provide them with relevant tools to apply federal principles and practices. The Forum tailors these tools to make them useful and relevant to specific internal governance challenges. The countries that can benefit most of Forum’s development assistance programs are new and emerging federal and devolved countries.
