[wanabidii] Making politics work for development: Harnessing transparency and citizen engagement

The majority of development work is done in imperfect governance environments where things need to be done – and quickly. This report looks at making politics work for development, rather than against it, to address government failures. It discusses trends and the context of government failures, political engagement and transparency, and finds that citizen political engagement and transparency can bring about necessary changes in political behaviour.

The paper presents lessons learned from research on how the latter work together to improve governance and encourages a shift in development policy advice which confronts politics and incorporates it into the search for technical solutions to development problems.
