On 20th of April 2016 a discussion forum devoted to the topic “Local Government Reform – will it succeed this time?” took place at the conference center of the Estonian Parliament. It was organized in cooperation with the Estonian City Union and County Government Union, Harjumaa Municipality Union, the Estonian Parliament, NGO Polis and other partners. The forum focused on the draft law of the amalgamation reform (200 SE), which is currently under legislative proceeding at the Estonian parliament, and the further development during its implementation. It included presentations by politicians, academics and practitioners as well as speeches by the elected representatives of parliamentary fractions. This was followed by a discussion among fraction members, where the participants explained their different perspectives on the amalgamation reform.
