What factors influence community
participation in the delivery of urban services? In
particular, does security of tenure enhance the probability
of participation as it provides individuals with incentives
to act collectively in pursuit of a common objective? And
are collective efforts less likely to succeed when there is
a high degree of heterogeneity in culture or endowments
among community members? The authors use household level
survey data for Bangalore, India, to show that tenure
security has a significant impact on the willingness of
residents to participate even when neighborhoods are diverse
in terms of their cultural background and welfare status.
Their findings suggest that participation is possible in
heterogeneous communities when it is a means to a common
objective and not a goal by itself.
