This course introduces participants to the key elements of comparative local governance. It addresses conceptions of governance and how they drive public sector representation, service delivery and reform. Notions of public value, public interest, localism and innovation are also discussed in order to map out how these are translated into local government structures and determine the role and purpose of this level of government. International and interstate examples of local government models and legislative frameworks are used to illustrate the practical articulation of these concepts.
