Governance and accountability

(Gover-nability) of

multiple values of municipal corporations


International Journal of Public Sector Management Municipal corporations (MCs) have been established in different parts of the world to provide local public services (such as infrastructure, utilities, education, health care, cultural and social services) under the influence of New Public Management (NPM) doctrines and related neoliberal ideologies (Thynne, 1994; Grossi and Reichard, 2008). Their hybrid organizational nature implies that their governance is permeated by a multiplicity of values.()
Interesting topics but are not limited to the following issues:
How can we conceptualize, evaluate, and measure the multiples values, and performance of MCs?
How do multiple values shape governance and accountability practices, and reversely, in MCs?
How do governance and accountability practices aim to cope with the multiplicity of values in MCs?
How can governments ensure that societal and public values and value creation are protected?
How do corporate actors (i.e. board members, auditors, controllers, CSR managers, etc.) work to create governance and accountability practices in MCs?
How is it possible to protect the public values in a context with multiple values and actors?
How can citizens and other stakeholders be involved to create participatory governance and accountability practices in MCs? What are the effects of hybridity of MCs on value creation and the forms of accounting and accountability practices?
