Democratic Governance and the Future of City Regions

The five-part Discussion Paper begins with a new mapping of public sector bodies and organisations based on a privatisation of governance typology. The next chapter discusses New Labour’s modernisation and the neoliberal agenda. Chapter three examines the effect of different elements of the government’s public sector transformation strategy on democratic governance such as the changing the role of the state; personalisation and choice; commissioning and contracting; regional and local economic and regeneration strategies; the growth of services markets; new models of governance and public management and empowerment and participation. The Paper explains the City Region concept, the future of the state and urban governance and democratic accountability and the governance of City Regions. (48 pages)
