There is witnessed an emergence of a new paradigm of governance alongside the process of globalisation. Pluralisation of state is the major feature of the new governance. The state is expected to shed its pre-eminence over development and resources. The three actors of development, state, market and civil society have to work together for arriving at a synergetic solution to developmental problems. The harmony is to be attained, guided by the principles of good governance like participation, accountability and transparency. As the contours of the new paradigm and its impact unfold rapidly, there is a growing debate over its relevance in developing countries like India. While the proponents see it as a newer mantra of development complementing the process of globalisation, serious concerns have been raised by the critics over the ramifications of adopting the neo-liberal path of development as advocated by the new paradigm. The critics believe that, if adopted whole hog, there could be many detrimental effects of the new paradigm for attaining a more inclusive development. Moreover, the harmonisation expected among the three actors of development in terms of their goals and actions may prove to be elusive given many interest conflicts. The book is an attempt to understand critically the nature of the new governance, and identify some of the key challenges it may pose at different levels for addressing basic developmental problems like poverty and inequality. There are contributions in the book from scholars and experts from academia, civil service and NGO sector giving a cross sectional perspective about the emerging paradigm. The book will be of relevance to researchers, donors, practitioners and students interested in understanding the links between governance and development. Contents I. INTRODUCTION : 1.
