How is good governance achieved in states that have collapsed? Participants will develop effective strategies for establishing stable institutions and supporting a robust civil society. Dynamic modules will address the inter-relationship among issues of corruption, accountability, rule of law, elections, political party development, public administration, and economic reconstruction in divided societies.
Although elections are an essential component in a democratic transition, a successful strategy for effective governance must also include an interim government that is seen as legitimate in the eyes of the people and the international community, a written constitution, a strengthened justice system, and an engaged civil society.
Participants will learn how to develop an action plan for promoting good governance in a particular transition environment, and will apply lessons learned to current war-to-peace transitions.
This course will also pay special attention to the role of the United Nations and the United States in peace implementation and state building.
