TL;DR: In this article, a method to separate the Global Terrorism Database (GTD) into transnational and domestic terrorist incidents was proposed, which is essential for the understanding of some terrorism phenomena when the two types of terrorism are hypothesized to have different impacts.
Abstract: This article devises a method to separate the Global Terrorism Database (GTD) into transnational and domestic terrorist incidents. This decomposition is essential for the understanding of some terrorism phenomena when the two types of terrorism are hypothesized to have different impacts. For example, transnational terrorism may have a greater adverse effect than domestic terrorism on economic growth. Moreover, the causes of the two types of terrorism may differ. Once the data are separated, we apply a calibration method to address some issues with GTD data - namely, the missing data for 1993 and different coding procedures used before 1998. In particular, we calibrate the GTD transnational terrorist incidents to ITERATE transnational terrorist incidents to address GTD's undercounting of incidents in much of the 1970s and its overcounting of incidents in much of the 1990s. Given our assumption that analogous errors characterize domestic terrorist events in GTD, we apply the same calibrations to adjust GTD domestic incidents. The second part of the article investigates the dynamic aspects of GTD domestic and transnational terrorist incidents, based on the calibrated data. Contemporaneous and lagged cross-correlations for the two types of terrorist incidents are computed for component time series involving casualties, deaths, assassinations, bombings, and armed attacks. We find a large cross-correlation between domestic and transnational terrorist incidents that persists over a number of periods. A key finding is that shocks to domestic terrorism result in persistent effects on transnational terrorism; however, the reverse is not true. This finding suggests that domestic terrorism can spill over to transnational terrorism, so that prime-target countries cannot ignore domestic terrorism abroad and may need to assist in curbing this homegrown terrorism.

TL;DR: It is suggested that e-governance can play a significant role for corruption control and poverty reduction, and thus offers opportunities to cost-effective service delivery to the citizens in Bangladesh.
Abstract: More and more public administration emphasizes how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can be used to support transformational change in governmental functions globally to achieve efficiency and cost-effective service delivery to citizens. Bangladesh public administration employs energies to achieve this goal. Experience in some developing countries has shown that e-governance can improve transparency which leads to, among other things, corruption control and poverty reduction. This article examines the role that e-governance can play in the modernization of public administration for efficient and effective service delivery to the citizens of Bangladesh, as well as its potential to control corruption and reduce poverty. Based on the lessons learned from successful practices in developing countries and literature review, it suggests that e-governance can play a significant role for corruption control and poverty reduction, and thus offers opportunities to cost-effective service delivery to the citizens in Bangladesh.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors present two theoretical paradigms (systems and complexity theories) through which organizational change processes can be fruitfully examined, which can equip organizational leaders with the requisite knowledge and understanding of how to respond and adapt to the uncertainties and demands of global change.
Abstract: It is becoming increasingly important for organizations to gain competitive advantage by being able to manage and survive change. This paper presents two theoretical paradigms (systems and complexity theories) through which organizational change processes can be fruitfully examined. Systems and complexity theories are two valuable perspectives that can equip organizational leaders with the requisite knowledge and understanding of how to respond and adapt to the uncertainties and demands of global change. These two paradigms are particularly useful in the areas of organizational intelligence, organizational design, knowledge management, and corporate strategy, to mention but a few.

TL;DR: In this article, the role of governance in solid waste management as administered by the city governments in Bangladesh is analyzed and reviewed based on empirical data gathered in the years 2000, 2003 and 2009.
Abstract: This paper analyzes and reviews the role of governance in solid waste management as administered by the city governments in Bangladesh. An attempt has been made to examine how and to what extent operational problems impede delivery of conservancy services to urban dwellers. The study is primarily based on empirical data gathered in the years 2000, 2003 and 2009. The data document the lack of good governance which has a negative effect on the performance of a conservancy department. As a result, the department delivers inadequate and unsatisfactory services, thus rendering city governments vulnerable to citizens' complaints. A direct consequence of the poor performance of the conservancy department is the growth of community-based initiatives, private and non-government organizations, which are increasingly playing an important role in delivering conservancy services. In the light of its findings, the paper argues that city government, instead of showing indifference to private and community initiatives that have succeeded in reaching the service users, should share the service delivery responsibility with them. The results suggest that a well-built public–private partnership can ensure effective solid waste management and thus good urban governance in Bangladesh. The key lessons learned are: a number of challenges that stem from the lack of good governance thwarted an effective solid waste management; formation of public–private partnership was possible in a politically divided society; and, partnership emerged as an instrument for better service delivery.
