Abstract

The implementation of the “Washington consensus” model in less developed and transitional countries, together with the neoliberal economic development, has also implied the transition from the “bad” to the “good” governance. The concept of the “good” governance centres around the governance ideology of effectiveness and the high-quality public service delivery. The increased effectiveness and capability, however, does not necessarily ensure qualifying governance for a longterm shaping of a state’s future. The governance model in transition largely determines the transitional success or failure. The “bad” governance in Croatia is a consequence of low efficacy and rampant corruption as well as of a lack of strategic and creative governance.
