Community Effects in a Global Context

(p.179) 6 Policy-Centered Theory and Urban Programs
Does Local Government Matter?

Elaine B. Sharp

University of Minnesota Press

This book has been devoted to an exploration of whether local government policies and programs exhibit the kinds of policy feedback effects observed in policy-centered studies of major social programs at the national level. From that process of exploration, the book also yields insights about modifications to policy-centered theory. This chapter outlines these findings and insights, situates them in ongoing efforts to fine-tune policy-centered theory, and relates them to the broad issue of local adaptations to globalization challenges.

Keywords:   policy-centered theory, local government, policy feedback effects, globalization
