Languages of publication
Good governance concept is currently one of the most often implemented concepts which are aimed at the improvement of public administration. It is implemented especially in those countries considering themselves democratic ones but its partial implementation is evident in almost entire world. This phenomenon is actually a cause of pressure from various trans- and international subjects (including the World Bank, United Nations, International Monetary Fund, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development or European Union), which determine their support by good governance implementation or by implementation of some of its elements. In spite of this, it is vague and unclear concept from some perspectives and it evokes many questions on both a side of practitioners and a side of various scholars. A main objective of this article is linked to it. The author points out development of the concept, and consequently he selects critical approaches or comments and through them points out those weaknesses or unclearness which are associated with the concept.
