The concept of governance is not a new one but nowadays we hear words as corporate governance, organizational governance or good governance frequently. Actually corporate governance or, as defined in ISO FDIS 26000, organizational governance is the system by which an organization makes and implements decisions in pursuit of its objectives.

The professional practice of counseling and mental health has become
overly complex and litigious. Public outcry over recent corporate and government

Few issues display more clearly the competition between China’s drive to
become economically developed and to conserve biodiversity than hydropower
development. This is the subject of China’s most recent environmental
controversy. In August 2003, the National Development and Reform
Commission, a powerful economics super-ministry, authorized construction of
a 13-station dam along the Nu1 River (Nujiang) in Yunnan Province. After at

It is the task of the HAS and the UNDESA to track and keep in focus changes in
the atmosphere of world governance and public administration. The United
Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs is a department of the United
Nations, based in New York, with a particular role in improving governance
world-wide; and the International Institute of Administrative Sciences, based in
Brussels, is a long-established (1930-founded) and neutral scientific institute that

In writing this book we have kept in mind our aim of providing a concise
account of the main issues which presently characterise our system of
administrative justice. The book is intended as a text for undergraduates
taking a modular course in administrative law and indeed its origins lie in our
own experience of teaching and adapting such a course here at Sheffield.
Inevitably we owe a considerable debt to past and present colleagues whose
work has formed the basis of much of our thinking in this text.
creative and thoughtful new approaches, as indicated above. Their analyses, however, have not been guided by theory or statistical and ethical principles, and have not taken account of extensive research on these issues and development of new methods that has taken place in the last two decades. Government and academic statisticians, largely outside of public health, have developed a variety of “perturbation” methods such as “data swapping” and “controlled rounding” that can limit disclosure risk while maximizing...
This book is structured in three parts. In Part I, we aim to sensitise you,
the reader, to the complex issues that challenge qualitative researchers
at the planning stage of their projects. In Part II, the challenge of using
different methodologies in practice is critically explored by 15 authors
who share their individual research experiences. Part III examines the
choices we make when we evaluate and present research.
We hope you will find this book both exciting and helpful. Inevitably,
there are many gaps in terms of topics and issues covered, and methodologies

Governments within mixed economies have regularly supplanted the market determination of prices with legally instituted prices. In some cases, governments dictate that goods and services may not be sold for more than a specific price—price ceilings.
