Este artículo analiza las estrategias de colaboración para la prestación de servicios a nivel local en los municipios de España, Estados Unidos y Noruega. De forma concreta, se centra en la importancia y naturaleza con la que dicha estrategia se desarrolla en los casos mencionados, así como el papel que diversos factores tienen en ella. Para ello, se atiende a elementos de la dinámica social, económica y política del municipio, pero también a elementos del diseño institucional que configuran la posición que las administraciones locales ocupan en el sistema de gobierno local en cada caso. Ello requiere un planteamiento analítico en dos niveles diferentes. Uno de ellos, el que denominamos meso, atiende a elementos del diseño institucional que operan en el municipio como un elemento determinante en los modelos de coproducción de servicios. El otro nivel, denominado micro, atiende a aquellos elementos que sitúan en la sociedad política local, determinando también las oportunidades de las administraciones locales para el desarrollo de sus estrategias.

This paper analyzes collaboration strategies for the provision of services at local level in the municipalities of Spain, United States and Norway. It focuses on the importance of these strategies and how they are carried out in the cases mentioned, as well as the role that various factors play in such strategies. For this purpose, attention is paid to elements of the social, economic and political dynamics of the municipality, but also to the institutional design elements which shape the position that local authorities occupy in the intergovernmental system in each case. This requires an analytical approach at two different levels, which we call meso and micro respectively. The meso level concerns institutional design elements that operate in the municipality as a determining factor in the collaboration models, whilst the micro level deals with those elements located in local political society that determine the local authorities' opportunities for carrying out their strategies.
