One theme that keeps recurring throughout this mini-special issue is the problem of complexity. A globalizing world is one that is increasingly complex in governance terms both
internal to the nation state and externally in the domain of global governance. Indeed
multi-level governance is viewed in developed countries to be an effective method for
managing complexity. Moreover, the institutions of global governance increasingly play
a central role within this context as agents of neo-liberalism and propagators of the
“Post Washington Consensus” (Gore 2000). This observation assumes, however, that
certain institutional principles and practices of democratic governance are in place. In a
young democracy such as Indonesia many of these principles and practices are either
missing or are unobserved (Grindle 2004). At least seven conditions for the establishment
of effective development administration in the context of multi-level governance can be
derived from the preceding analysis.
