On the locus of justice in the resource allocation of a small city
A narrative presenting the development and reforms of the budgetary process and related organisational changes in the city of Gothenburg is subjected to an analysis inspired by Rawls' Theory of Justice. It is found that the centre of decisions on priorities have shifted over time, but above all it is found that the drive towards 'procedural justice' may provide an approach that will allow more interested parties than the traditional 'advocates' and 'guardians' to participate.
