This book aims to familiarize the reader with various dimensions and issues of governance in the globalized world.

It is important to understand governance and its effects on administration and development in the context of a globalized environment. This textbook deals with the concepts and dimensions of governance by highlighting the major debates in the contemporary times. It emphasizes on the paradigm shift from government to governance and how the role of the state has changed over the years. Different facets of governance, such as democratic decentralization, environmental governance and role of non-state actors have been thoroughly discussed. Further, it provides insights into various good governance initiatives introduced in India, including Right to Information Act (RTI), e-governance and Citizen's Charter.
