New 'New Localism' or Emperor's New Clothes: Diverging local social policies and state-voluntary sector relations in an era of localism
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
This paper aims to examine what the policy, practice and academic implications are of England becoming a container of diverse social policies as a result of the implementation of policies of localism. Through a case study of Greater Manchester (GM), it addresses the implications for the local voluntary sector. GM is a key example of an ambitious local public sector assemblage that is attempting complex, large-scale policy implementation in the context of greater devolution.
