What provision should be made in local government legislation?

Community-level governance is a focus in much of the public sector reform occurring in the world at the moment. Interest in this topic stems from two major sources. The first is the desire to strengthen citizen engagement in local government, while the second is the need to

pleased to work with MDL which undertook the research on behalf on the project partners.
