Compliments for your English skills! Your concept of "good governance" is a bit idealistic but you are able to make some important points very clear.(professor's comment) , abstract: The agricultural sector represents a perfect example of a strong demand for a rapid change in regulations. The BSE crisis in Germany in 2000/2001 may be seen as an example of such an incremental change. The question arises: how such change can be stimulated? This research paper argues that global food safety crisis might cause rapid food regulation policy alteration on a national level. Special role here plays intense public reaction to the danger due to its sensitivity to environmental threats, which partly stimulated politicians to an adequate reaction. Might this reaction be considered as a sign of a Good Governance?
