Abstract

Health, education, water supply, housing, policing, roads: the services that local governments deliver determine our quality of life. As states decentralise, moreover, the influence of local governments is increasing almost everywhere. Local Government and Human Rights: Doing Good Service suggests how human rights principles and methods can strengthen public accountability and participation and assist officials to plan, implement and evaluate services for which they are responsible. Used thoughtfully, the framework provides practical, specific tools that can help local governments to be effective.

Keywords: human rights, local government, services, public accountability, participation
