EGAP 19: Sciences Po, March 2017

Host: Daniel Rubenson, Sciences Po, Ryerson University

Theme: Institutions & Governance. Good governance has long been seen as an important driver of economic growth and well-being. With the endorsement of the SDGs at the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, good governance was fundamentally established as a development goal in itself. In particular, SDG 16 recognizes the connection between good governance and “effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.” This workshop aims to explore the different ways that effective institutions can be implemented, evaluated, and built upon in an effort to understand how good governance can be achieved.

EGAP 16: University of Cape Town, March 2016

A critical challenge facing governance is that of dealing with social violence in its various manifestations – addressing its causes, managing it in more constructive ways and seeking to prevent it through building more cohesive and peaceful societies. This workshop aims to highlight experimental research that explores the causes and dynamics of conflict and violence, as well as approaches to preventing or resolving violence, particularly interventions that address the root causes of conflict, and promote social cohesion.
