We give a brief survey of results and conjectures concerning the local determination of invariants of Brauer p-blocks of finite groups. We highlight the connections between the various conjectures, in particular those of Alperin-McKay and of Broue, and identify where further conjectures have to be made. We focus on the problem of generalising Broue's conjecture, and suggest a generalisation of the idea of a perfect isometry. Finally we present evidence that such a generalised perfect isometry should exist in certain cases.
