Quangos are now a permanent layer of governance in Britain. This collection challenges the debate which portrays quangos as inherently undemocratic. Whilst accepting that problems exist, this book accepts that quangos are here to stay. Through a collection of chapters by practitioners, politicians and academics it recognizes both the pitfalls and potential offered by these bodies. The book therefore illuminates a new perspective on the debate which for the first time highlights the democratic possibilities of quangos. The book advances and clarifies this complex debate by examining the British reform debate in an international context, and blends theoretical analysis which illuminating case studies from Quango Chief Executives and concrete proposals for reform.
