Fridays Academy: Governance

From Raj Nallari and Breda Griffith's lecture notes.


At least six dimensions of governance are referred to repeatedly in the literature. These are: (i) voice and accountability, (ii) political stability, (iii) government effectiveness, (iv) regulatory quality, (v) rule of law, and (vi) control of corruption (Kaufmann and Kraay 2002).
