Governance, Security & Justice
We improve governance, security and justice services and structures in developing states, particularly in areas where conflict and fragility hinders independent institutional progress.
We work with governments and civil society at local, regional and national levels, to develop processes and systems that are context specific, efficient, accountable and sustainable. We help institutions to build their capacity, to develop sustainable governance structures, and build the local leadership skills that can drive real progress.
We work with local stakeholders to help shape their own development. We help to build the local skills to support change and draw on global expertise to ensure each solution fits its environment. We develop key governance reform agendas that support local partners to remove governance constraints to service delivery and improve institutional effectiveness.
Our results-based monitoring and evaluation systems ensure programmes both achieve their objectives and can adjust to lessons learned and dynamic situations. Our analysts and programme managers have undertaken research, developed policy and delivered solutions on more than 350 projects around the world.
