dc.description.abstract
Local governments possess different degrees of autonomy in policy-making and implementation. On the one hand, there is the institutional autonomy that regulates what kind of formal policy-making competencies local governments have. On the other hand, local governments differ in their policy-making and implementation capacity because of structural factors such as size, wealth, expertise and other resources. Whereas the national institutional framework determines the institutional autonomy and it is largely the same for all local governments in one given national state (Ladner et al., 2016), the structural capacity varies. Small and medium-sized towns (SMSTs) often have more economic and political power than small municipalities but tend to be curtailed with regard to their structural capacity compared to larger cities and metropolitan centres. However, this does not imply that SMSTs cannot play a decisive role in designing and implementing public policy. SMSTs can pursue different strategies such as taking advantage of place-specific factors, cooperating with a variety of actors and tapping into policy-making venues at different governmental levels. In this chapter, we will shed light on what kind of public policies SMSTs formulate and how they can shape their development with public policies. To do so, we conceptually distinguish between three steps in the policy-making process (policy design, policy implementation, and policy impact) and between substantive and procedural elements of policy-making.
