|Subject Overview:||The study of governance helps to explain how cities work. Urban governance looks at the Constitution, roles and responsibilities of different levels of government, |
intergovernmental relations, fiscal transfers, municipal finance, models for financing and delivering municipal infrastructure and services, city negotiations with private sector
and civil society – ultimately a city’s ability to get things done. The context for governance has a significant influence on the substance and processes of planning and decision‐making
