Question and answer
Discuss the concept of governance. Is fostering openness in the system a part of good governance.
In the last twenty years, the concepts of “governance” and “good governance” have become widely used in both the academic and donor communities. These two traditions have dissimilar conceptualisations. [ First, there is the academic approach, which focuses mainly on the study of the different ways in which power and authority relations are structured in a given society. Second, there is
the donor community’s approach, which puts emphasis on the role state structures play in ensuring social, economic and policy equity and accountability through open policy processes. 11Good governance is also based on the transpa-rency of the decision-making process, which ensures that information is freely available and accessible to those involved or affected by the decisions taken. Transparency therefore means free access to information. Last, but not least, accountability and responsibility (of the insti-tutions, just as much as of the civil society) are key requirements of good governance, with all of the participants in the political and econo-mic processes being accountable for their deci-sions to each other. ]
