About this item

This book presents a nuanced analysis of governance in South Asia. It examines a range of themes including civil service reforms, women and development, environmental governance and public sector programmes, together with the impact of the globalisation on local issues and their influence on governance in the region. Through grassroots studies, the volume also traces how the last 20 years have seen a social and economic resurgence in South Asia — transiting from stages of poverty, low growth rates, illiteracy and poor health to flourishing economies, improved savings, greater investments and stronger human development indicators.

Drawing on extensive fieldwork, this book will be of great interest to scholars of politics and public administration, development studies, labour studies, and sociology & social anthropology. It will also be useful to practitioners in the field, NGOs and civil servants.
