Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


In this chapter we sum up and conclude the book. In the first part we
summarize the four paradoxes that have structured the book. The four paradoxes
relate to conflict, administration, openness and democracy. We then discuss the
national Norwegian framework for local government, and to what extent and
how changes in for example national legislation can influence on the paradoxes
and the tensions related to them. The third and last section focusses on the local
level, and discusses how political leaders, individually as well as a collective, can
strengthen their political leadership through different activities at different arenas for learning. In a brief and subsequent chapter, we give a practical example
on how this may be organized.
