Conceptualizing Local Government from a Multi-Dimensional Perspective

Daniel Adetoritse Tonwe


Community or local government is an ancient institution with evolving conceptualization. Local government is generally conceived as a political mechanism for governance at the grassroots (local) level. Though, politics which highlights the participation of the local citicizery in goal setting and decision-making is central to the concept of local government; its conceptualizing in contemporary times is a lot more encompassing. This paper posits that local government is a multi-dimensional and integrated concept. It is an integrant of democracy with social, economic, geographic, legal and administrative dimensions.
Key words: Local government; Multi-dimensional perspective; Government activities; Democracy
