Building a Citizens Partnership in Democratic Governance covers 10 years of efforts (2000 -2010) in building and sustaining citizens partnership with the government and in creating a working democracy in a large city like Delhi. It provides an in-depth coverage of the theory, principles and processes of large-group dynamics . It also presents its practical applicability through the involvement of resident welfare associations, market and trade organizations, industry associations, students eco-clubs, electricity distribution companies, government departments and civic agencies. The book brings out the fact that the major reason behind the success of the partnership is the projects taken up by the resident welfare associations and market and trade associations at the ground level in association with government departments.
