Abstract:The dilemmas about the position of city councils with respect to governance partners have been strongly questioned past years. There are several reports appeared about whether and how municipalities can exert influence on governance partners. The present thesis aims to provide insight into the tasks of the city council of Enschede in the guidance, control and supervision with respect to the governance partners. It is also investigated in which ways the task execution can be improved. The study is using the different theories to understand how factors interact between each other and in specific given contexts. In addition, there is developed a new process model to explain and show the whole process around governance partners. To answer the questions of this study methods of qualitative research were used. Based on the results of the interviews and document analysis, this study finds that are a number of (practical) issues that could be improved. It has been discovered that the provision of information is not optimal and that a periodic evaluation of the governance partners is lacking. Suggested recommendations to improve the position of the city council of Enschede with respect to governance partners are: making the role and responsibilities of the city council more explicit, provide a periodic evaluation, improve the arrangements with governance partners and coordinate the amount of information with the needs of the city council.
