In recent years, nation-states across the world have become interested in, and committed to, increasing the participation of citizens in public affairs. This general interest in public participation has been accompanied, according to some writers, by a move from systems of government to what those like Rhodes call governance. It was to investigate the ways in which developments in public participation related to ideas of community government that the Centre for the Study of Public Participation at the University of Luton, in collaboration with the Political Science department at Gotburg University, decided to hold an international conference. The conference took place in June 1999 at the University of Luton's Putteridge Bay site.
