The Virtuous Cycle: Building Resilient Governance Systems

Sat., January 27, 2018, 9am-5pm

Description: This course introduces the notion that formal governments exert authority only within broader governance systems in which individuals and groups representing diverse interests also exert authority. The course explores how the dynamic roles, rules, and relationships among these actors shape complex governance systems that we can understand through the application of locally tailored field research approaches. Students will learn how to recognize individuals and groups who hold informal authority in their communities, and how to use a deep understanding of governance system dynamics to identify ways to most effectively pursue development objectives. Students will be able to plan a rapid field research exercise that leverages key informant interview and focus group approaches to learn about local governance systems.
