Abstract

Over the past half century Latin America has witnessed very rapid urbanization and the development of several massive metropolitan areas sprawling across many governmental jurisdictions. As a region with a strong historical and cultural experience of centralization and a weak local governance tradition, Latin America would seem like a very fertile ground for the emergence of strong metropolitan governments. Nevertheless, this has not been the case.
