Description

Est-ce que les réformes visant à combler l’écart entre pouvoir politique et citoyens (démocratie directe, accords de coopération entre le secteur privé et les services publics, élection directe du maire,…) mènent à une révolution en profondeur ou plutôt à une simple rénovation des administrations locales ? Dans cet ouvrage, différents experts internationaux en matière de politique locale se penchent sur la question. A travers les différentes contributions comparant la situation spécifique de différents pays, le lecteur découvrira que de nombreuses discussions ‘typiquement belges’ sont tout aussi bien valables pour d'autres pays.
