Power, Empowerment and Participatory Development: Conceptual Linkages
Participation is not a new concept Buchy, Ross et al. It represents a move from the global, aspatial, top-down strategies that dominated early development initiatives to more locally sensitive methodologies Storey . There are differing opinions as to the origins of participation theory. Midgley et al  suggested that the historical antecedents of community participation include: the legacy of western ideology, the influence of community development and the contribution of social work and community radicalism. Buchy, Ross et al suggested that literature on participation and participatory processes stems broadly from two major areas: political sciences and development theory.

This article discusses the theory and practice of so-called participatory governance. It explains that participatory governance is a variant or subset of governance theory which puts emphasis on democratic engagement, in particular through deliberative practices. Participatory governance seeks to deepen citizen participation in the governmental process by examining the assumptions and practices of the traditional view that generally hinders the realization of a genuine participatory democracy. The article also addresses the interrelated questions of citizen competence, empowerment, and capacity building as they relate to participatory governance, and evaluates the impact of participatory governance on service delivery, social equity, and political representation. Keywords: participatory governance , governance theory , democratic engagement , citizen participation , participatory democracy , empowerment , service delivery , social equity , political representation.
