Learning from transformation experiences worldwide

All around the world, we see signs of progress in countries undergoing political and economic transformation. But success in targeting the dual goals of a democracy under the rule of law and a market economy equipped with sociopolitical safeguards is by no means guaranteed. In many countries, change in this direction is jeopardized by stymied reforms, power struggles and state failure. Good governance is key to ensuring that a country stay the course to sustainable development. Shaping Change – Strategies of Development and Transformation is a project that aims to help improve political management by analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of existing processes while facilitating the knowledge transfer of good practices.
