Foreword

Improved governance remains central to Africa’s peace and security and to its economic transformation. This is reflected in the strong interface between better governance and economic progress on the continent and in the increased demands by citizens for democracy, accountability, civil liberties and the rule of law. How these issues are resolved will shape public policies and influence economic performance.
