About this book

This edited book explores the link between institutional reforms, governance and services delivery in the Global South, mapping how and to what extent resource-poor governments deliver public services to their citizens. The book concludes that delivery of public services responsibly and efficiently remains largely unachievable because of weaker institutions and poor quality of governance in the Global South countries. Reforms to governance and institutions are generally considered fitting measures to overcome public service delivery challenges.

Reviews

“Through a deft integration of comparative policy analysis, public administration, and institutional design, this book provides a unique understanding of governance capacity challenges and opportunities in the Global South. Design, reform, and delivery are explored in detailed country case studies, tempered with regional comparisons. The book significantly expands the frontiers of policy analysis and public administration, both in theory and in practice.” (Lesile A. Pal, Founding Dean, College of Public Policy, Hamdan Bin Khalifa University, Doha, Qatar)
“This volume brings together a variety of cases offering valuable insights into the role of institutional reform, policy design, and governance in shaping delivery of public service in the Global South, particularly in the MENA and Asian countries. It also provides vital impetus for public policy and governance studies in Global South stressing the challenges and opportunities in delivering public service to meet the citizens needs and demand.” (M. Ramesh, Professor & UNESCO Chair on Social Policy Design in Asia, Lee Kuan School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore)
