Democratic Governance Policies

Good governance promotes, endorses and preserves equity, participation, pluralism and development.

Improving democratic governance in a country is perhaps a less tangible and more complex mechanism than social policies, but one that is equally important and effective for building social cohesion. Therefore political and state institutions are required which are efficient and effective, which are seen as legitimate by their citizens, which conduct their actions under the principles of transparency and integrity. “Corruption, violence, impunity, lack of access to justice and the lack of equitable and sustainable legal systems undermine the capacities of the State. Therefore, strengthening of the democratic State and the rule of law is essential for the formulation of inclusive policies and efficient fulfilment of its administrative and management functions, while likewise confronting the territorial asymmetries within countries”.
