Based on large-scale field surveys, Good Governance: Delivering Corruption-free Public Services studies trends in corruption in public services and offers suggestions on ways to implement good governance.

Given the adverse effects of corruption on society and economy, the author illuminates upon the linkages between corruption processes and operations, and provides a strategic approach to curb this menace together with a methodology for ensuring graft-free delivery of public services.

Not delineating corruption from the fabric of daily life, the discussion centers around a broad framework on how to go about addressing corruption from different perspectives—how the government should tackle it, what initiatives citizens and civil society should take and how the news media could explore a proactive and contributing role.

Good Governance talks about the pertinent problem of creating sustained public pressure for change with emphasis on the proactive need for change.
