Abstract

Reform of state institutions is a gateway to a country's progress and development. This research seeks to answer the following questions: 'to what extent do institutions, such as water, basic education and primary healthcare institutions, conform to good governance standards in Egypt?' and secondly, 'how can good governance offer a new perspective for institutional reform in Egypt?'. The research presents a comparative assessment for governance within the Egyptian water, basic education and primary healthcare institutions. The assessment is based on nationally-owned governance indicators, which informed the measurement and assessment of governance within the water, basic education and primary healthcare institutions in Egypt. The comparative assessment reveals low levels of transparency, participation, accountability and responsiveness shared among the water, basic education and primary healthcare institutions. As a result, the research suggests a reform process for state institutions from a good governance perspective that, in particular, emphasises transparency, participation, accountability and responsiveness.
