Administrative Reforms: Towards Sustainable Practices
SAGE, Oct 3, 2005 - Business & Economics - 319 pages
This volume analyses the impact of globalisation on governance, and specifically on public-sector reforms. Starting from the premise that adhocism and sectoralism are the main reasons why past attempts at administrative reforms in India have not succeeded, this book maintains that some of the basic tenets of mainstream approaches to administrative reform require urgent and critical re-examination.
The ten essays in this book dwell on three distinct areas—urban governance, energy and environmental governance, and service delivery systems—which have been subjected to a blizzard of reforms in recent years. The contributors investigate the role of public and private partners as agents of change and showcase successful experiments that have transformed the lives of local rural communities.
