Social governance is a form of governance that evolved in relation to conflict management and peace in the last few decades. With its origin partly in western style mass democracy, social welfare and market economy, and partly in the evolution of a sense of justice that emanated from struggles against
colonialism, social governance has grown into a system that has many trajectories. Post-colonial states have often addressed demands for justice through the axis of development, and in a neoliberal world, that has meant the growth of market economy, capital accumulation and changes in infrastructure in
tandem with neo-liberal politics and crony capitalism.
