    Good governance is a perquisite to development, improving the quality of life, health and ensuring equity. This book examines the interdependency of good governance and economic development by exploring perspectives from the Global North and Global South.

    It assesses the impact of good governance upon economic development of the countries such as USA, India, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and others, and on groups of developing nations like BRICS or ASEAN. The book investigates the interrelationships between development indicators like education, health, gender equity, resource distribution, environmental preservation, quality of life, livelihood and others with governance and provides empirical verifications of the impact of good governance upon development. Further, it offers insights into the economic and governance challenges that developing countries face and highlights strategies for governance that have proved effective in bolstering sustainable growth.

    This volume will be of interest to students and researchers of economics, political science, social science, international relations, public administration, and sociology.
