About the product

The publication defines good governance as the exercise of authority through political and institutional processes that are transparent and accountable, and encourage public participation. It explores the links between good governance and human rights in four areas: democratic institutions, the delivery of State services, the rule of law, and anti-corruption measures. It presents 21 case studies of governance reforms that have helped to better protect human rights.
