Globalization of this era accelerated in the 1990s as the process and result of integrating the world into a single market and system of production. It took off in the early 1990s and its main political impact was democratization at both national and local levels around the world. By the beginning of the twenty first century, globalization latched onto urbanization and pushed it to unprecedented rates of increase, especially in the developing parts of the world with enormous social as well as political consequences. Research in the 1990s established a clear connection between the globalization of localities and the democratic values of local political leaders and their democratic practices of engaging larger nuntbepw of groups in local decisions. By the middle of the first decade of this century, however, the awaking to global megalopolises and mega cities challenged the viability of local governance based on local participation. The sheer size of the problems of delivering services in these huge localities justified calls for a New Public Mattagement that relies on professionals potentially undermining the global local democratic dynamics that seemed to take hold in the 1990s. That is a new challenge to democracy and its reliance on "contrnunities" for its" legitimacy.
