Decentralisation appeals to actors across the political spectrum and has become a cornerstone of development orthodoxy. Although the new South African government has adopted a range of policies that promote decentralisation, competing tendencies toward centralisation have become increasingly evident. This article, examines how donors have supported decentralisation in South Africa, how they have affected the implementation if decentralisation policies, and what impact, if any, donors have had on the form of decentralisation.
