OUR FOCUS

Accountable Governance

Our Good Governance Cluster works towards the development of accountable institutions and effective, agile and transparent governance mechanisms that can cope with the complex challenges of democracy in the 21st century. Our work supports the core capacities for institutional reform and strengthening (such as public financial management, parliamentary scrutiny or public administration reform), strongly emphasizes transparency and public dialogue, and strives to build innovation into mainstream policy. Our activities are grouped under three portfolios: 

  • Inclusive Political Processes: we focus on strengthening parliamentary democracy by stimulating inclusive policy dialogue and broad participation. Our activities include the work with the National Assembly, local assembles, civil society, independent scrutiny bodies and citizens. We work on opening new avenues for exchange, accessibility, transparency, oversight and efficiency.  
  • Public Finance: we focus on advancing the performance of state and non-state actors, both at central and local levels, for effective enforcement and prevention of the misuse of public funds. The portfolio encompasses support for almost all institutions in the public finance domain, as well as empowering civil society and media to articulate stronger demand for accountability. 
  • Innovation, public policy and rule of law: this broad portfolio responds to the need to re-imagine governance and public policy in order to respond to 21st-century challenges. We focus on the opportunities created by technology to drive public administration reform, engage citizens and communities, and experiment with new forms of public dialogue.
