This open access book shows that public services are more important than ever in the face of the climate catastrophe, mounting inequalities, and growing political unrest. Together, civil society organisations, trade unions, and local authorities are crafting new templates for how to expand democratic public ownership to all levels of society and opening up new routes to community-led and climate conscious public service. TNI's research has identified more than 1,400 successful (re)municipalisation cases involving more than 2,400 cities in 58 countries around the world.

We are awakened to a new reality. The pandemic outbreak by an infectious pathogen comes to no surprise to the Global Health community.

In situations of crisis, public service provision and access to health and welfare services can rapidly deteriorate.
