This project formed the UK part of the larger Municipal Assemblies in European Local Governance research project. It entailed in the sending a questionnaire to local councillors in the UK about their roles, attitudes, and experiences of being a local councillor. Their responses were shared with research teams across Europe who had conducted similar exercises to form a large comparative dataset about local councillors in Europe.
Findings are summarised in the book 'Local councillors in Europe', edited by Bjorn Egner, David Sweeting, and Pieter-Jan Klok, published in 2013 by Springer VS. https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783658018566
