Welcome to the special issue of the World Journal of Entrepreneurship, Management and Sustainable Development (WJEMSD) entitled Good Governance and Public Policy on Sustainable Development. This special issue consists of selected papers presented at the Third International Conference on Law, Governance and Globalization (ICLGG) on 3-4 November 2021 at the Faculty of Law, Universitas Airlangga, Surabaya, Indonesia. The conference theme was The Challenge of Sustainable Development: Present and Future.
The Theme of the Special Issue
The theme for this special issue was chosen due to the global challenges to sustainable development agendas, including building strong governance institutions and supporting the rule of law. The academic literature on good governance, public policy and sustainable development has grown rapidly, where the role of governance for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has mainly been addressed from a conception and normative point of view. However, the Asia and Pacific SDG Progress Report for 2019 showed that the region lagged behind in implementing most SDGs. The problem is that governments in some countries are relatively passive and face various challenges. Meanwhile, governments are the accelerator of SDGs to collaborate across policy sectors and set inter-related economic, social and environmental objectives beyond short-term political cycles. Therefore, by providing ideas and solutions for building a strong policy on sustainable development, this special issue can ultimately contribute to more effective SDG implementation in developing countries, especially Indonesia.
