Governance and Development

Many development problems are attributed to 'bad governance', but what is 'good governance'? To what extent and in what ways does governance actually affect development, and how can the quality of governance be improved? This course explores these questions and equips you with the ability to critically assess competing theories of the public sector's role in social and economic development; develop and implement policies for improving the effectiveness, accountability and legitimacy of governance in specific settings; and understand the significance of current processes for international and national institutions. This course is for you if you already have an understanding of debates on governance, and it aims to enhance your capacity to develop and implement policies in both public-sector organisations and non-government organisations (NGOs). The course is based around the work of IDS's dynamic Governance Team, which is actively engaged in policy-related research on a broad range of governance-related issues worldwide.
