    Abstract

    There are a number of key international drivers which are prompting local governments across the world
    to re-consider the way they organise themselves, manage service delivery, work with stakeholders, engage
    with citizens and hold themselves accountable. These drivers can be summarised as: changes in community
    requirements of local government; changes in community attitudes towards local government; changing
    central government expectations of local government; and, the changing nature of local government work
    including the emergence of new partners in local governance. Of course these drivers are not confined to
    local government but have had a significant impact on all levels of Australian government.
