The Local Autonomy Index deals with the most meaningful dimensions of local autonomy: legal autonomy, political leeway, financial autonomy, organizational autonomy, access and non-interference. The aim is to provide an updated cross-country comparison of local autonomy. Country rankings and country-specific patterns are also developed. The project is carried out under the responsibility of Prof. Dr. Andreas Ladner and his team of the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration (IDHEAP), University of Lausanne, Switzerland. The researchers associated with PLDP were responsible for the coding of the local autonomy index for Luxembourg.
