Centre for Study of Governance Innovation
"How can governance evolve and innovate? Can current crises become opportunities to re-think our social, political and economic governance?
Our focus areas:
- BEYOND GDP: Alternative development approaches and new metrics of economic performance and well-being
- GOVERNANCE OF THE COMMONS: land, food, water, energy, agriculture and natural resources
- REGIONALISM FROM BELOW: regional integration, civil society, migration and human development
- HUMAN SECURITY: livelihoods, people's centred development and creative conflict transformation
The Centre for Study of Governance Innovation (GovInn) is the first research institution in Africa dedicated entirely to governance innovation. It focuses not only on cutting-edge research, but it is also an ‘innovation laboratory’ capable of generating new thinking about governance and development as well as attract innovators from all over the world. In short, GovInn is an intellectual ‘inn’ for innovation in the 21st century."
