Building trust in government : innovations in governance reform in Asia by G. Shabbir Cheema( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ability of governments and the global community to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, ensure security, and promote adherence to basic standards of human rights depends on people's trust in their government. This book seeks to answer many of the questions raised in reference to means of strengthening trust in government within the Asia Pacific region. Through analyses of trends within North-East Asia, South-East Asia, South Asia and the Pacific Islands and specific innovations and reforms at the country level, it provides various perspectives on the causes of the decline in trust, countries and institutions that have managed to maintain higher degrees of confidence, and governance innovations and practices that have played an important role in strengthening trust once it has faltered."--Publisher's description

Cross-border governance in Asia : regional issues and mechanisms by G. Shabbir Cheema( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rapid globalization has led to increased flows of capital, services, ideas, information and people between countries. Problems that face one nation often have a rippling impact throughout the region and globally. This growing list of cross-border challenges cannot be resolved by isolated policy action at the national or sub-national level. It is essential to forge cross-border strategic alliances and develop consolidated approaches through regional platforms for dialogue and mechanisms for action. This book discusses regional governance mechanisms and institutional arrangements to respond to emerging cross-border issues and trends in Asia and the Pacific."--Publisher's description

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Asian countries have introduced major reforms and new institutional mechanisms to promote the engagement of elected local governments, civil society and the private sector. This book attempts to examine emerging issues in democratic local governance and factors that influenced the impetus for and the substance of reforms. It asks: What have been challenges in designing and implementing decentralization policies and programs? What are the constraints on strengthening citizen participation? What is the impact of reforms to promote gender and rights perspectives in local governance? What is the role of local government in service delivery and access? How effective have the mechanisms for accountability and transparency in local governance been? What are the driving forces influencing democratic local governance reform? This volume attempts to address these questions as it discusses studies from theoretical and comparative perspectives on specific issues as well as myriad cases across Asia, often dealing with country-specific reforms"--
