Posted date:

Launched at the Oslo Governance Forum in October 2011, Making the State Responsive is a collection of 9 case studies and for conceptual essays to  take  stock  of  what  has  happened  to governance and governance assessments over the past two decades. There have been significant changes in both theory and practice. At the theoretical level, the most notable shift has been toward treating governance as regime management. This has meant a greater emphasis on the ‘rules of the game’ and on the political dynamics surrounding their implementation. At the level of practice, there has been a growing recognition of the role that citizens play.
