The primary objective of this book is to make an attempt to expand the reach of public administration in the realm of governance. The fusion between public administration and governance may be possible in the near future if key concepts related to both can be dealt with in greater detail.
The book covers a wide range of topics including public management and governance. Experiences of South East Asian Countries are analysed in the area of major reforms to highlight their implications for governance and public management for Bangladesh.
The book also includes discussion, analysis, and evaluation of Bangladesh’s experience with governance, public administration reform resistance, unsatisfactory corruption control, state of NGOs and problems that confront citizens in the urban areas.
The book will greatly interest students and academicians in the field of governance and public management. It will also prove invaluable for researchers and administrators. This work is designed to be an essential textbook for students of South Asian and development studies with examples from Bangladesh’s experience in good Governance.
