2016-2017 Hart Fellow Matt Hamilton co-authors Myanmar policy institute’s first publication

Matt Hamilton, a 2016-2017 Hart Fellow, was recently named as the co-author of The Renaissance Institute’s first publication.

The Renaissance Institute, a new policy institute in Yangon, Myanmar, is working to support economic reform in the country’s new democracy. They are particularly interested in reforms that increase democratization and increase public participation in economic decisions.

The report, which Matt helped both to research and write, delves into the issue of participatory budgeting, which encourages stakeholder participation in the budgeting process. Participatory budgeting can play a role in decentralization and can give local governments more revenue and expenditure responsibilities.

You can find the whole report—in both English and Burmese—here.
