Launch of “On Governance” by Robert Rotberg

On April 28, 2015, the Woodrow Wilson Center Africa Program hosted Dr. Robert I. Rotberg for a discussion on his recently released book, "On Governance: What It is, What It Measures and Its Policy Uses," which examines more than 90 governance indexes and analyzes best practices to suggest how policymakers can use governance theory and indexes to improve both domestic and multilateral decision-making.

 

Dr. Rotberg discussed the definition of global governance and outlined how the evaluation of "good governance" is best performed through the examination of outputs and objective measurements. Dr. Rotberg's book seeks to guide national governments and inform civil society organizations, international agencies, donors, and foreign investors in the development of governance practices and institutions.
