Two Articles Co-Authored by Detlef Sack on Local State-Society Relations
in: Close Ties in European Local Governance. Linking Local State and Society, Editors: Teles, F., Gendźwiłł, A., Stănuș, C., Heinelt, H.
This book develops and tests a typology of local state-society relations. To deliver such a comparative study on institutionalized relations between local government and societal actors at the municipal level in Europe, the book identifies and classifies country-specific patterns of these institutionalized governance networks. This work explores the diversity within these institutionalized networks, approaching it from a strong comparative perspective that is anchored on a new typology allowing a more robust analysis of the identifiable patterns. It is a study with appeal to scholars and students of local government, public administration and political science as well as to those pursuing this debate and implementing similar agendas as practitioners.
