Overview


Governance and law are today firmly on the agenda of the World Bank and other international financial institutions. As the scope of the governance agenda expands, so does the need to discuss and analyse the variety of factors that should be taken into account to ensure success in the implementation of governance-related projects. This book, written by a distinguished group of lawyers and practitioners from developed and developing countries, addresses a wide range of issues related to governance both at the local and international levels. It covers topics that have long been on the governance agenda, such as judicial training, privatisation, financial sector reform and various aspects of capacity building. It also covers many issues that have only recently become part of the development agenda, such as legal education, the politics of institution building in rural and urban communities and the role of political parties in the establishment of democracy. It includes studies that explore the often neglected links between the structures of domestic governance and the growing number of international economic law rules in the areas of trade, investment, technology transfer and the environment.
