The conference "Effective Multilevel Governance in Education" is organised jointly by UNESCO's Education Sector and the OECD's Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI). <br /><br />The conference will look at key questions in multilevel governance such as:<br />- what can central governments still do in highly decentralised systems, and which policy instruments still work in the complex reality of education governance, i.e. one that is fluid, de-central and fragmented?<br />- do local governments have the capacity to govern in your country context, and are they held sufficiently accountable by local stakeholders?<br />- what issues arise from multilevel governance where power is spread over different levels, e.g. co-ordination, conflict, trust?<br /><br />
