Democratic governance and diverging pathways to more inclusive societies
2013: Year in Review
This report presents the key achievements and results from UNDP's democratic governance supported initiatives in 2013, from well-run parliaments to accessible formal and customary justice systems, to measures for combating corruption. It reveals how we anticipate a future where democratic governance, as a set of values and principles, is ever more widely understood as integral to development as a whole.
The report is divided into six sections, focusing on: inclusive participation, responsive institutions, international principles, knowledge generation and dissemination, democratic governance in the post-2015 development agenda, and lessons learned to inform and enhance programming and policy development.
