Strengthening Governance Globally is the fifth volume in a series entitled Patterns of Potential Human Progress that explores prospects for human development and the improvement of the global human condition. Each volume considers one key aspectMoreStrengthening Governance Globally is the fifth volume in a series entitled Patterns of Potential Human Progress that explores prospects for human development and the improvement of the global human condition. Each volume considers one key aspect of how development appears to be unfolding globally, how we would like it to evolve, and how better to move it in desired directions. This large format, full color volume identifies the provision of security, the building of government capacity, and the broadening and deepening of inclusion as three dimensions of governance on which high-income countries have traditionally made long, halting, and somewhat sequential historical transitions. In contrast, many developing countries today struggle with all three governance transition dimensions simultaneously and in a relative rush to broadly defined development. The volume maps and uses the growing empirical database on governance variables for understanding historical change on these dimensions and in recent decades.
