Programme structure

This programme explores the issues of governance, state-building and development from an interdisciplinary standpoint, combining the theoretical rigour of political science and the practical experience of development. The good governance agenda that has emerged occurs now increasingly alongside the current debate on state-building, which encompasses issues such as accountability and transparency, corruption, conflict, political settlement, human rights, participation, access to justice, and democratisation.

Governance and state-building are of particular interest to governments, non-governmental organisations and development agencies, as well as to a growing and vibrant academic community.
