Contexte

Good governance lays at the foundation of stabilization and rebuilding processes in war-torn societies. International standards of good governance are only emerging, but at least the following indicators are widely shared: public accountability, transparency and institutional quality. Good governance refers to these measurable dimensions and it is assessed against qualitative and quantitative components. Enhancing good governance requires not only institutional capacity, but also knowledge and understanding of the roles of different factors and actors within a country.

But(s) de l'évènement

The goal of this course is to provide participants with an overview of the strategic goals of good governance and insights on how to promote it in war-torn societies. 

Objectifs d'apprentissage

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
 
  • Identify global and local conditions for good governance and relate them to a crisis-affected society;
  • Discuss the applicability of such conditions to improve the effectiveness of interventions;
  • Situate such conditions in the larger context of institution recovery/rebuilding and good governance.
 

Contenu et structure

The course is composed of three modules, defined as follows: 
  • Module 1: Dynamics of state formation and crisis-affected societies.
  • Module 2: Good governance.
  • Module 3: Capacity building and enhancing impact.

Méthodologie

The course is based on the synergy of theory and practice. The conceptual foundations of leadership are laid out through lessons. Taking advantage of the opportunities of technology-enhanced learning, the learning materials are presented through various media, such as text, images and video material, which contribute to better retention and enhance the learning process.
 
The concepts learned will be applied in scenario-based activities, which allow participants to solve challenges in realistic situations. Interaction is a core component of this course, as participants are required to share experiences, discuss point of views through multiple forum discussions. Self-assessment tools are also available for participants. Participants will be assessed based on their performance in the scenario-based activities.
