Event description

Description

With politics now at the forefront of development theory and practice, the past decade has seen a flourishing of new approaches to understanding the problems and potential of governance in the global south. However, the new governance agenda has so far raised more questions than answers. For example, how does new macro-thinking on the political roots of underdevelopment relate to new micro-level initiatives aimed at improving governance? Has the 'good-enough governance agenda' finally displaced the discredited 'good governance’ agenda, and if so does this indicate a rowing-back of international commitments to more democratic and accountable forms of governance?

Led by Professor Merilee Grindle, the world’s leading authority on the subject, this masterclass will critically address these questions, including through a consideration of the World Bank’s latest flagship report on ‘Governance, Law and Development’, which seems to reveal both potential and pitfalls of the new governance agenda.


Lunch will be provided from 1.15 - 2pm.
