This colloquium brings together field research from six Indian states in order to examine the impact of globalization-related governance reform on public service delivery in the areas of health, education, and sanitation in Indian cities. Globalization-led governance reforms have been experienced by both advanced industrialized states as well as developing or industrializing states. They pose challenges to established institutions of policymaking as well as to the public policy scholarship about governance mechanisms and processes. Governance debates have become the locus of policy dilemmas in the advanced states.
