Local governance has become a subject of particular interest even in the context of globalization. As bottom-up strategy it aims at increasing opportunities for civil society to engage in affairs of their own. As top-down strategy it wants to mobilize all endogenous potential available to improve political steering capacity. This book examines theoretical approaches towards citizens' participation and provides case studies that indicate a varied menu of contemporary local democracies, urban and regional governance in Europe (Germany, Sweden, Italy), Asia (Korea, Taiwan) and the U.S.
