Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review


Although stakeholder theory has been on the academic agenda for more than 30 years, to date, empirical evidence is scant about stakeholders’ influences as determinant factors of local governments’ performance. The investigation examines determinant factors of local government performance analyzing articles published in journals ranked in the Journal of Citation Report. The choice of papers was based in a systematic literature review encompassing articles published in the period from 2007 to 2017 in which stakeholder influences are used for explaining local government performance. This paper contributes to this field of knowledge by synthesizing the pertinent publications, by pointing out a gap in the literature and by proposing an agenda for future studies.
