Role of Civil Society in promoting Good Governance in Mizoram

ABSTRACT

Recently the terms “governance” and “good governance” are being increasingly used in development literature. The concept of “governance” is not new. It is as old as human civilization. People and governments are looking to civil society as active partners in the delivery of services. The article looks at the role of civil society in promoting good governance in Mizoram. The role of the Civil Society in the State started when the Church tried to bring peace due to insurgency. The real role played by the Civil Society for good governance came into prominence with the rise of the consciousness of the people in the late 1990s. People became more aware of good governance and various NGOs have taken up the cause for good governance.
