About Good Governance Worldwide
ASPA’s Section for Public Management Practice (SPMP) and the GGW Website/Journal 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.
The ASPA Section and the GGW Website/Journal will do this by linking to relevant public sector and non-profit sector organizations and their websites. It will also publish a series of symposia issues and practitioner-oriented reports, research papers, articles and Op-ed manuscripts which will be uploaded regularly to the GGW Website.
Good Governance Worldwide
What Good Governance Means
Good Governance Worldwide is the interactive Web site of ASPA’s Section for Public Management Practice. Its aim is to promote good governance within a global community of public management practice – here in the United States and other advanced industrial countries and in modernizing and emerging democracies around the world. As a collaboration with other ASPA Sections and Chapters, this online journal and professional network aspires to offer a wide array of best practice content – through e-articles, commentaries, book reviews, interviews, blogs, podcasts, videos, topical forums, wikis, etc. – and open up networking opportunities for practitioners, applied researchers, PA students, trainers, and technical consultants, among others. Also, in addition to ASPA’s Sections and Chapters, we’ve reached out to other organizations with related content relevant to this worldwide community of practice – proven tools, techniques, strategies and field-tested experience that can be shared through such a global online vehicle.
Editorial Advisory Board
The Editorial Board advises the Managing Editor on prospective content for the online site – including links to other sites, other contributors from the global network, social/professional networking, etc. – the formulation of an editorial calendar and a call for content for the remainder of the calendar year. It meets periodically as needed to maintain proper and current communication.

- Serve as Editors in Chief for Good Governance Worldwide Symposia Issues
