New book on developmental local government published by Isandla Institute

"Consolidating Developmental Local Government: Lessons from the South African Experience" documents the dynamics of local government transformation and captures the key themes of the debates about policy options, lessons and key strategic decisions. These debates are aimed at ensuring that municipalities play a key role in creating more democratic, non-racial, equitable and sustainable communities, towns and cities.

Compiled and written by people who participated in one way or another in the experience of democratic consolidation, this text will be an indispensable resource for government officials, students, researchers, specialists, community leaders, businesses and the general reader. Critical questions are raised throughout the book about the kinds of challenges that all those involved with the future of local governance will face in the years ahead.

The book is now available in leading book stores. Book launches will be organised in February in Johannesburg/Pretoria and Durban. For more details about the publication or the book launches, contact Isandla Institute on 021 465 8751 or admin@isandla.org.za
