Author: Thoenig, Jean-Claude ; Burlen, KatherineINSEAD Area: Organisational BehaviourIn: The anonymous leader - Appointed CEO's in Western local government by Kurt Klaudi Klausen and Annick Magnier; Odense University, 1998 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 188-203.Type of document: INSEAD ChapterNote: Please ask the Library for this chapter.Abstract: In 1995 France had 36,763 municipalities, by far the largest number within the European Union. France has two more territorial levels above the municipality:the region (21) and the "département" (96).ALL municipalities follow the same pattern politically and administratively,whether they are a metropolis or a village. Since the beginning of the mid 1970s France has experienced a spectacular revival of local government. Today the management of subnational public affairs may be compared to a kind of free market. Even today and despite tougher financial conditions the municipalities find room for expansion: while the government faces much tougher budgetary contraints their fiscal revenues continue to grow. The study of French municipal CEOs focuses upon municipalities of 5,000 inhabitants or more. It exludes the small municipalities such as villages where a full time CEO is rarely employed
