Case studies

Case studies summarize a country's experience with the implementation of a specific or a set of reform activities. These country' experiences are a useful source of information as they show a practical application of concepts and provide information on successful best practices.

Below you can find numerous case studies from various countries on different reform activities. You can select them by topic or by country.These case studies were published by different organisations, such as the OECD, WCO, WTO and the World Bank. The UNECE TFIG project also drafted some case stories in the context of developing the TFIG. Those can also be accessed on the http://tfig.itcilo.org/case-stories.html.
