Local Regional Governance

Governance was always there and multi-level governance was always there. Nevertheless, if transitions are coming and if we need new forms of adaptation, if we moreover are trying to give more weight to local knowledge and ambitions, then it seems that all levels of governance and government have to be reinforced at the same time. Which will undoubtedly come with new tensions and conflicts, but also with new opportunities for giving due weight to more voices, to pursue common goods, and to integrate policy wherever it is most necessary.

In this book we discuss issues of local regional governance.
