Governing with empathy and wisdom. At Anath we involve interaction between the formal institutions and those in civil society. We promote the process whereby elements in society wield power, authority and influence and enact policies and decisions concerning public life and social upliftment.
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.
Over the past few decades, a new form of governance has emerged to replace adversarial and managerial modes of policy making and implementation. Collaborative governance, as it has come to be known, brings public and private stakeholders together in collective forums with public agencies to engage in consensus-oriented decision making.
