Emerging Trends in Public Administration: Engagement in Policy and Service Delivery For the 21st Century

Rajesh Kumar (Editor) Nagendra Ambedkar Sole (Editor) Janak Singh Meena (Editor)

Public Administration has established itself as a distinct discipline and has also gained significant popularity in the academic discourse. It has a vast field of sub-disciplines and opened new avenues for research and enquiry. There are two major discourses in Governance, 'the government governing the least governs the best' and 'administration engaged from cradle to grave'. The idea of people-centric administration was emphasized in the Twelfth Five Year Plan and by Second Administrative Reforms Commission in its Twelfth Report named 'Citizen-Centric Administration: The Heart of Good Governance'. This book contains 16 papers covering diverse themes in Public Administration research. The topics range from citizen centric administration, to local governance, public service delivery, e-governance, corporate governance, sustainable development, policy making and implementation and so on. Public Administration, as a distinct discipline is expanding its scope and dimensions and not just limited to the governmental functioning. This book is mainly focused on the emerging issues in Public Administration such as : ● Peoples' Participation and Governance ● Digitized Public Administration ● Citizen Centric Administration ● Solid Waste Management ● Right to Information ● Public Service Guarantee Acts ● Second Administrative Reforms Commission ● Social Administration
