This book brings together recent empirical analyses of renegotiating the roles of citizens and their relationships to public governance in different contexts. It looks at the different ways in which citizens are conceptualised in local governance; the new demands they are facing from local governance; and how they themselves perceive and respond to these changes and demands. The book reports empirical and applied citizen-centred research in local governance including multiculturalism, economic migration, community cohesion, housing markets, neighbourhoods, faith organisations, behaviour change, and children's services, to establish a differentiated, contemporary view of the ways that citizens are constituted at the local level today.

Keywords:   governance, citizen, demand, community, housing, empirical analyses, multiculturalism, migration
