Globalization is one of the most debated concepts in contemporary discussions in the domain of development. The emerging paradigm of governance in the area of globalization reframes the roles of institutions of state, market and civil society. This involves questioning of the erstwhile dominant role of other institutions. Weakening and erosion of major modern institutions of governance such as legislature, bureaucracy and judiciary in third world reflects the growing governance crisis. Social tension and conflicts based on identity are on rise. This has significant implications on issues such as social equity, justice and environment that affect the life of people, especially the third world poor. This collection addresses some pertinent issues that emanate from the emerging paradigm of governance. The major areas of concern are globalization, civil society, gender social services and infrastructure. This documentation will help carry forward creation of knowledge and formulation of strategies in the field of rural management to meet the future challenge of rural development.
