image of African Governance Report II - 2009

The African Governance Report is the most comprehensive report on governance in Africa, assesses and monitors the progress African countries are making on governance, identifies capacity gaps in governance institutions and proposes polices and strategic interventions aimed at promoting good governance on the continent. It focuses on political and economic governance, development of the private sector and corporate governance, checks and balances in political power, institutional effectiveness and accountability of the executive, human rights and the rule of law, corruption and institutional capacity building. The theme of this second edition of the Report is that Africa has made progress in improving governance.




This report was prepared under the leadership of Mr. Abdoulie Janneh, Under- Secretary General and Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA). Keen to ensure the success and institutionalization of the report, Mr. Janneh supported all of the major proposals of ECA’s Governance and Public Administration Division (GPAD), including its publication by Oxford University Press in order to ensure its wider circulation. GPAD is deeply grateful to Mr. Janneh. Deputy Executive Secretary Madame Lalla Ben Barka also actively supported the preparation of AGR II. As the chairperson of the Knowledge Management and Publications Committee of ECA, she kept the report regularly in the forefront of committee deliberations and was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed.
