Seminar on Federalism in the Americas

The Forum worked with several partners to organize
an international seminar entitled "Federalism in the
Americas” in São Paulo, Brazil, from 20-21 September
2000. The more than 50 participants included
representatives of both state and municipal
governments (Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo) as well
as representatives of civil society. The discussions
covered such issues as local government and
federalism in the Americas, metropolitan areas, and
Latin American regional integration. The Forum’s
partners in organizing this event were the Konrad
Adenauer Foundation, the Centro de Estudos de
Cultura Contemporânea (CEDEC), the Getulio Vargas
Foundation (EAESP/FGV-SP), and the Fundação do
Desenvolvimento Administrativo (FUNDAP)
