Default Assessing Democracy and Governance

CIFP, 5 Feb 08: Assessing Democracy and Governance: A CIFP Handbook
This handbook, funded by CIDA's Office for Democracy and Governance (ODG) is intended to be a user-friendly decision support tool to assist government desk officers, programme planners, NGOs and international governmental organisations in their operational and strategic decision making, country planning and project evaluation. It distills the findings of previous phases of the project, synthesising relevant findings from CIFP's research for the Department of National Defence (DND), the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), the RCMP-CISC, the EC and more recently CIDA's Policy Branch. Over the course of this decade-long research endeavor, CIFP has developed a suite of tools for policy-relevant country analysis and risk assessment.
Complete 50 page handbook at the link.

Looks like a very helpful tool for the S-9 and PRT folks on the way over. Thanks for the link.

Must be something about being at the same university...

It is useful to distinguish between good governance and democratic processes because failings in any element of democratic process can result in less than optimal [governance outcomes, while conditions often associated with good governance can result without democratic process. The two do not directly equate.
