Street-level governments : assessing decentralization and urban services by Robert K Yin( Book )

Urban decentralization is an attempt to reorganize local services through some combination of: (1) giving service recipients or clients greater responsibility over service policies (the client dimension) and (2) increasing service resources at the level of specific, geographically defined neighborhoods (the territorial dimension). The reorganization can stem from one or more of seven possible strategies; community relations, physical redeployment, administrative decentralization, grievance mechanism, employment of neighborhood residents, new neighborhood institutions, and/or political decentralization. These seven strategies fall into three groups that reflect the degree of intended decentralization along either the client or territorial dimension. The first four are weak strategies, the next two are moderate strategies, and the last may be considered a strong strategy. The present study is a summary assessment of 269 case studies of urban decentralization, dealing with three major questions: What have been the outcomes of the decentralization innovations, as reported by the case studies? What is the relationship between these outcomes and the attempt to implement weak, moderate and strong decentralization strategies? What is the relationship between these outcomes and various other factors? (Author/JM)

Cities of the mind by Douglas Yates( Book )

4 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion is made of the nature and sources of the urban crisis, a debate which has often been called a national sport, particularly appealing to amateur humanitarians, social scientists, journalists, and embattled mayors. It is, the author claims, an intriguing controversy characterized by ingenuous or fanciful theory, provocative insights, and sharp rebuttals. The main fascination appears to be that so many people can look at the same reality and discover so many different causes and dynamics -- always with considerable conviction that one favored explanation can solve the puzzle

Political innovation and institution-building : the experience of decentralization experiments by Douglas Yates( Book )

2 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to resolve what determines the success or failure of innovations in participatory government; and, more precisely what are the dynamics of institution-building by which the ideas of participation and decentralization are implemented and enduring neighborhood institutions are established. To answer these questions, a number of decentralization experiments were examined to determine which organization structures, social conditions, and political arrangements are most conducive to successful innovation and institution -building. This inquiry has several theoretical implications: (1) it examines the nature and utility of political resources available to ordinary citizens seeking to influence their government; (2) it comments on the process of innovation (3) the inquiry addresses the problem of political development, at least as it exists in urban neighborhoods; and (4) it seeks to lay the groundwork for a theory of neighborhood problem-solving and a strategy of neighborhood development.
