Governance & Justice

Governance & Justice Pullquote

Governance is about power and authority. It’s about institutions. It’s about the incentives and the interests that we all respond to. If we don’t understand that, then our programs are much more likely to fail.

Empowering Citizens, Equipping Leaders

Effective, responsive and accountable institutions build the foundation for inclusive, sustainable development. We support governance processes that reach for these goals. Our analyses reflect local circumstances and empower change agents to maximize chances of success. We enable and equip leaders, coalitions and groups to lead change. Our investments in local staff, networks and partnerships develop solutions that are technically sound – and politically feasible.
