This collection of essays and case studies explores the strand of localism related to decentralised decision-making and the active participation of local communities in decisions. It focuses on the question of collective choice at the local level. The pamphlet sets out to explain and clarify the practical opportunities and challenges for localism, and also to advocate an approach to decentralisation in public services which empowers and strengthens all local communities, based on the values of fairness and inclusion.
