Jesse C. Ribot analyzes how ‘democratic’ decentralization reforms in most developing countries, rather than empowering representative elected local government, have often resulted in a transfer of power to a wide range of local institutions, including private bodies, customary authorities and non-governmental organizations. This essay explores the logic behind choosing these institutions and the effects of recognizing these institutions on three dimensions of democracy: representation, citizenship and the public domain.Development (2007) 50, 43–49. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100335
