N Bhaskara Rao,

Good Governance: Delivering Corruption-free Public Services
 

About the eBook

Based on the findings of large-scale field surveys, Good Governance provides a primary review of trends in corruption, as encountered by citizens when availing of public services, and offers insightful suggestions on ways to implement good governance.

Given the adverse effects of corruption on society, economy, citizenship and civic life, the author illuminates upon a comprehensive understanding of the linkages involved in corruption processes and operations, and provides a strategic approach to curb this menace together with a methodology for ensuring graft-free delivery of public services.

Not delineating corruption from the fabric of daily life, the discussion centres around a broad framework on how to go about addressing corruption from different perspectives-how the government should tackle it, what initiatives citizens and civil society should take and how the news media could explore a proactive and contributing role. In fact, the book says that the media is capable of covering corruption with a direct objective of curbing it. Thus, the fight against corruption has to be strategic, focused and multipronged.

Good Governance talks about the pertinent problem of creating sustained public pressure for change, the emphasis being on the proactive need for change.
