KC – Millstein, M (2010) Limits to Local Democracy: The Politics of Urban Governance Transformations in Cape Town
Is a decentralized government more effective and accountable than a state centred public administration?
This publication provides the reader with a new way of understanding modern urban governance from a South African perspective. The question of how to create political legitimacy is in focus and this publication is therefore a good source for understanding the decentralization process in South Africa. By doing so, this publication supports urban governance officials in their work in creating functional and accountable local democratic institutions.
