What is good governance? | Ben Warner | TEDxJacksonvilleSalon
Local government must often make decisions on multifaceted issues, and those choices have substantial implications for our community. But when those choices are made without robust citizen input, the quality of our governance suffers. Now, more than ever, it's important that each one of us assumes the burden of civic participation.
Ben Warner is the President & CEO of Jacksonville Community Council Inc. (JCCI).
The model that JCCI uses invites the community to discuss a topic with subject matter experts resulting in months of study aimed at finding real solutions that work, he said. It’s a model that’s gained international attention for JCCI, which has fine tuned its approach since 1975.
Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, invited Warner to speak before the G8 about the way JCCI implements change through involvement of the community. He’s also spoke on this topic in Berlin, Brazil and Paris.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Good governance is an indeterminate term used in the international development literature to describe how public institutions conduct public affairs and manage public resources. Governance is the process of decision-making and the process by which decisions are implemented (or not implemented). The term governance can apply to corporate, international, national, local governance or to the interactions between other sectors of society.
The concept of good governance often emerges as a model to compare ineffective economies or political bodies with viable economies and political bodies. The concept centers on the responsibility of governments and governing bodies to meet the needs of the masses as opposed to select groups in society. Because countries often described as most successful are Western liberal democratic states, concentrated in Europe and the Americas, good governance standards often measure other state institutions against these states. Aid organizations and the authorities of developed countries often will focus the meaning of good governance to a set of requirements that conform to the organization's agenda, making good governance imply many different things in many different contexts.
According to Sam Agere, The discretionary space left by the lack of a clear well-defined scope for what governance encompasses allows users to choose and set their own parameters.
In the book Contesting 'good' governance, Eva Poluha and Mona Rosendahl contest standards that are common to western democracy as measures of goodness in government. By applying political anthropological methods, they conclude that while governments believe they apply concepts of good governance while making decisions, cultural differences can cause conflict with the heterogeneous standards of the international community.
An additional source of good governance criticism is The Intelligent Person's Guide to Good Governance, written by Surendra Munshi. Munshi's work was created in order to revive good governance. Many individuals tend to either wave away and be bored with the idea of governance, or not have a clue to what it has at all. This book is a generalized discussion on what the purpose of good governance is and how it serves that purpose throughout our society. Munshi targets the book toward anyone doing research or just simply those concerned with the issue of governance.
Rethinking Systems: Configurations of Politics and Policy in Contemporary Governance, written by Micheal P. Crozier, is another work analyzing good governance. Crozier's article discusses the different dynamics of changes that occur throughout communication systems and the effect it has on governance. The idea of various perspectives is presented throughout the article. This allowed the reader to be able to see what contemporary governance is like through different pairs of eyes. Crozier's motive was to also create an open mindset when referring to how governance and policy within society operates, especially with the constant changes occurring day to day.
