Description
Governance is now widely accepted as a critical factor for poverty eradication. This Global Future asks: How can the international community address the 'governance gap'? How can civil society actors secure the space to exercise their right – and duty – to engage with the state for better governance? And does improved transparency and accountability make life better for the poor? PDF: 2.1 Mb
