The book seeks to fill a vacuum in the theory-practice dichotomy that has dominated the debate on governance thus far. It makes a deliberate attempt at marrying academic rigour with illuminative practical experiences. Written by some of the most well-known and noted scholars and practitioners in the field of governance and covering a wide gamut of topics, the book provides a recipe for practitioners, governance policy-makers, aid managers and others involved in not only the pursuit of good governance but also effective public policy and management in the Asia-Pacific region, arguably the most vibrant region in the world today. It will be relevant not only to academics and practitioners in the developing world, but also in the developed world.
