Language: English . Brand New Book. The primary purpose of this edited collection is to evaluate critically the relationship between local government and national economic development. It focuses on how the relationship between local government and development is structured, and the specific institutional arrangements at national and subnational levels that might facilitate local government s assumption of the role of development agent. In light of the contradictory outcomes of development and implied experimentation with new modalities, post-development discourse provides a useful explanatory framework for the book. Schoburgh, Martin and Gatchair s central argument is that the pursuit of national developmental goals is given a sustainable foundation when development planning and strategies take into account elements that have the potential to determine the rate of social transformation. Their emphasis on localism establishes a clear link between local government and local economic development in the context of developing countries. N° de ref. de la librería SPR9781137558350

Acerca de


"The central argument of this book is that local government and politics matter if sustainable development is going to take place. The cases and analysis support that argument. It makes an important contribution that should be widely read." - Gerry Stoker, University of Canberra, Australia, and University of Southampton, UK

"This publication on developmental local governance comes at a critical time when the international community, including the Caribbean, is about to adopt the post-2015 development agenda for 2015-30. There is a strong realisation that this new agenda has to be driven from the bottom-up, with a focus on localising the proposed sustainable development goals (SDGs). Developmental local governance, and within this local government, will have a key role in helping to set, implement and monitor development goals and targets, as was highlighted at recent high level meetings of the Commonwealth Local Government Forum. This book therefore makes a key contribution to the ongoing policy debate and will be extremely valuable to everyone, especially senior policy makers and academics, concerned with issues of global development and governance." - Carl Wright, Commonwealth Local Government Forum, UK
