Connect With Us

The primary purpose of ASPA’s Section for Public Management Practice and the Good Governance Worldwide Web site is to provide practitioners around the world with insight into today’s public sector challenges and efforts underway that offer innovative solutions for our global community of practice.

It is further intended to help forge a more global network within which participants can share their challenges – in both advanced industrial nations and emerging democracies and modernizing countries.

Most importantly, we wish to help connect professional public management practitioners with others who may have invaluable experience and perspectives not available within a more limited public service community.

The GGW Journal and Website is intended to help practitioners and academics in ASPA and beyond to contribute to a more favorable view of public service and public employees and provide for increased understanding of how “good governance” contributes to advancing the goals of societies and associations around the world and demonstrate to practitioners and academics innovative solutions that have been developed within the government sector to address complex and difficult policy problems.
