This publication offers a number of insights and methodologies related to community-led initiatives for engagement with the local state and for local development, collaborative planning, social accountability tools and other models for community involvement in local development. The contributions are based on existing practices and emerging areas of work of member organisations of the Good Governance Learning Network (GGLN). The contributions in this edited volume, in some way or other, all point to the need for reconceptualising the relationship between the local state and communities in overcoming the ‘governance deficit’. Ultimately, this publication reinforces the imperative to fundamentally rethink what is meant by public participation based on an appreciation of the notion of active citizenship.
