Georgetown Democracy and Governance

Practitioners and scholars in fields as diverse as public policy, international development, and security studies increasingly recognize that successful programs in their fields require effective and accountable governance. The Democracy and Governance Program seeks to understand the foundations of democratic and responsive government, how policymakers can create and implement policies to achieve these objectives, and prepares students for careers in democracy assistance and governance reform.
