In Defence of Councillors

Manchester University Press

The chapters sets out the key themes of the book and identifies how the office of councillor and the expectations on councillors is shaped by forces such as Globalisation, Europeanisation, urbanisation, austerity and pressure to change exerted by other levels of government. The chapter sets out the importance of the constitutional standing of local government for developing the role of the councillor. It also explains the need to separate the office of councillor from those that hold the office and from the council as an institution, in order to be able to fully explore the purpose and role of the councillor as a local elected representative. The chapter explains the research on which the book is based.
