Much as we might assume that we have a common understanding of what good governance, economic management, and wider civil society participation is, the nature of each academic discipline often constructs the meaning of these concepts in a manner that merges with the already existing assumption and philosophy of that discipline.
It examines how teachers and researchers at the NUL conceptualize the terms "good governance" and "civil society participation." The issue of contention here is whether they have a clear and sufficient understanding of these terms to be able to integrate them into their day-to-day activities, which include teaching, research and provision of community service.
Good governance is generally understood to comprise certain basic principles, including "rule of law, effective and efficient state institutions, transparency and accountability in the management of public affairs, respect for human rights, meaningful participation of all citizens in the political processes of their countries and in decisions affecting their lives" (Annan 1997, 10).

 Understanding the Concept of Governance
John Healey and Mark Robinson1 define "good government" as follows: "It implies a high level of organisational effectiveness in relation to policy-formulation and the policies actually pursued, especially in the conduct of economic policy and its contribution to growth, stability and popular welfare.
"Good governance is epitomized by predictable, open and enlightened policy-making, a bureaucracy imbued with a professional ethos acting in furtherance of the public good, the rule of law, transparent processes, and a strong civil society participating in public affairs.
Governance is a rational concept, emphasising the nature of interactions between state and social actors, and among social actors themselves.

 Debating Democracy and Good Governance

It is a against this background that both the ruling party as well as the opposition parties are engaged in a campaign in the hope to win the May national elections and hope to change things for the better and build  true democracy that would ensure justice and equality for all Ethiopians.

 "Why Conservatives Can't Govern" by Alan Wolfe
Unable to shrink government but unwilling to improve it, conservatives attempt to split the difference, expanding government for political gain, but always in ways that validate their disregard for the very thing they are expanding.
So long as conservatives denigrate government while relying on government to achieve their objectives, Rumsfeld's vision of how to fight wars is the only kind of conservative foreign policy one can have.
The conservative vision of the world, because it is so hostile to government when government is so essential to the way we live now, remains unattractive to most Americans, which is why Republicans must rely on money to substitute for the large popular majorities they are unable to build and sustain.

If we are to add up the “good governance” scorecard of the military regime uptil Oct 12 there are many more pluses than minuses, if we were to go back further to the days before the President started his Referendum campaign, then those pluses are far more than those visible today.
