Wampler and Touchton’s Article on Brazil’s City Budgets Resurfaces

Brian Wampler and Michael Touchton co-wrote a piece for The Washington Post in 2014 about the benefits of democratizing city budgets in Brazil. The article, “Brazil let its citizens make decisions about city budgets. Here’s what happened.”, focuses on the benefits of “participatory institutions”. Their article caught the attention of two Brazilian newspapers and Brazil’s presidential office, and has received praise from The Chronicles of Higher Education.
