New Forms of Urban Governance in India: Shifts, Models, Networks and Contestations

This collection of articles looks at the impact of decentralization on local governance and citizen participation in urban democracy processes in India, from different perspectives, providing examples from major cities throughout the country.

The book examines how local governments work together with other actors in governing their localities in Indian mega-cities; especially what new forms of governance are emerging as a result of globalization and internal transformation processes. It analyzes whether new forms of governance open up opportunities for more participatory urban governance, improved service delivery with positive implications for poor groups in India's cities and whether these processes are inclusive for all residents in mega-cities, or exclude particular groups.
