Governance is defined as administering and managing the affairs of a state in such a way as to provide the people with better life conditions, directing them to the appropriate path and achieving the purpose for which the state is formed. It generally refers to the government, the principles on and for which it works and the strategy it adopts to create conducive conditions for leading a peaceful and dignified life. Oliver Williamson explains governance in two ways: one is ‘good order and workable arrangements’, the other is based on John R. Commons’ view and alludes to ‘the means by which order is accomplished in a relation in which potential conflict threatens to undo or upset opportunities to realise mutual gains’. In a broad sense, governance appertains to the entire social order, the purpose for which it is constructed and the way it works. Though the principles on which governance is based differ according to space and time, there are certain criteria universally accepted and taken into account to evaluate the process of governance and on which there is a consensus among men of knowledge. - See more at: http://radianceweekly.in/portal/issue/governance-in-early-islamic-period/article/administration-of-justice-in-umar-farooqs-caliphate/#sthash.agaRDSSH.dpuf
