Local government training has long been considered a major factor for the modernization and strengthening of local institutions in Latin America. Indeed, the manifesto of the Inter-American Organization for Inter-Municipal Cooperation (OICI) way back in the late 1930’s placed emphasis on the adequate training of local government officials both as a demand of the Latin American municipalist movement and as a strategy for rescuing local government from the inferior, apathetic state in which it had been kept by centralism and other disfunctions of the governmental process.
