Editors: K.C. Roy (Univ. of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia) and Biman Prasad (Univ. of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji Islands)
Book Description:
Since the early 1990s, the issue of improving the governance quality of a country for achieving higher levels of growth and development has assumed considerable importance in the development debate in the international forum. This book deals with a number of important issues relevant for improving the governance quality of developing countries. “Improving governance” is increasingly being included in the conditionality lists of donor governments and multilateral agencies for the disbursement of aid and loans to developing countries. There exists a substantial body of literature dealing with investment in women’s human capital, especially on her education and health, and their returns, both private and social returns. This book explores this and other social issues relating to this topic.
