Title: Federalism and Poverty Reduction in Nigeria and Sudan the Politics of Local, State and Federal Relations
Author: Mushieka, Hassan H.
Abstract: There is a large number of studies that has considered the impact of specific aspects of fiscal federalism and decentralized service delivery on poverty alleviation. Although a considerable number of empirical studies explored the direct relationship between federalism and poverty reduction, the results have not always been clear-cut. Notably, there have been very few attempts to bring federalism and poverty reduction together in a comprehensive study. The existing literature has approached the interaction between the two from a number of different aspects, each of which has its particular strengths and weaknesses. In many developing countries such as Nigeria and Sudan, federalism has been neglected by development policy makers and practitioners. There are weaknesses in the relationships between poverty reduction, states performance and institutional arrangements in federal settings.
