The term good governance has come to occupy an important place in development literature. Major aid donor countries and international financial institutions are basing their loans and grants on the condition that reforms in recipient countries are undertaken to ensure good governance. Good governance assures that corruption is minimized, the views of minorities are taken into account and that the voices of the most vulnerable in society are heard in decision-making. It is also responsive to the present and future needs of society. Good governance is an ideal which is difficult to achieve in its totality. Very few countries and societies have come close to achieving good governance in its totality. However, to ensure sustainable human development, actions must be taken to work towards this ideal. The present book is an attempt to study the principles of good governance. It has a futuristic approach and is an attempt to build conditions conducive for clean and efficient administration.
