Good Governance in Civil Society and Corporate Social Responsibility


Local self -governance is an elastic concept. It has been interpreted in many different ways so as to encompass many different aspects of social organization and the institutional framework within which social and economic activities are performed. Good governance has recently been accorded a central place in the changing scenario from developmental perspective. While two sets of problems have been identified that stand in the way of establishing truly good governance they are (a) the devolution of power from the top and (b) genuine involvement of the poor from the bottom on the other hand.

It is inconceivable that the problems involved in achieving good governance can be resolved without empowering the common people, especially the poorer segments of society. However the compatible social responsibility by private sector and good governance of civic society needs to address issues of common interest and societal benefit. Whether development orientation can be addressed by local self-governance at appropriate level? Intervention of self - governance is community based and self-directed bottom up driven process yet there are miles to go to address deal with complex socio-legal hurdles. The workshop examines the critical frame of the management practices that demand attention as a growing regional concern. Following objectives have been defined to address during the workshop. The corporate world has begun addressing the emerging concerns of social responsibility yet one has miles to go. The process public and private partnership has yet not evolved good governance norms in many developing region in absence of clarity of partnership principles.
