内容紹介

This book explores how political structures and relations affect the 'black box of power' between governmental levels. It draws on case studies in Canada, the UK and continental Europe to illustrate how the design of political structures and the relative hierarchy of the relations between actors affect how governments deliver services.

著者について

Dion Curry is Lecturer in Public Policy at Swansea University. He is interested in multi-level governance and issues of accountability and legitimacy in governance processes.
