Governance has emerged as a major challenge at various levels of society, and is one of the most fiercely debated issues of our time. We are witnessing the countervailing trends towards increasing roles for global organisations of various kinds on the one hand, and yet towards greater localisation on the other. There has been a major shift in many countries away from the dominance of the state towards a complex inter-relationship between the state, the market and the community sector. These trends raise major policy issues for governance in all democratic societies.
