Discussion paper

Writing on governance and development typically distinguishes two meanings (Lefi:wich 1993; Williams and Young 1994).The first, 'good government', is concerned with legitimacy, accountability and the limits of state power (Moore 1993). The second, originally invoked by the World Bank (1989: 60), is more concerned with the ability to govern effectively. Here I want to consider applications of a third meaning, which sees governance as the result of the interaction between different models of coordination, including markets and communities, as well as hierarchy, the state or 'the government' (Campbell, Hollingsworth and Lindberg 1991 ; Kooiman 1993; Larmour 1994) .
