Lecture and discussion with Amina J. Mohammed, Special Adviser on Post-2015 Development Planning to the Secretary-General, United Nations.
Good governance and sound institutions are at the core of the next development agenda. Peace and stability, human rights and effective governance based on the rule of law and transparent institutions are both outcomes and enablers of development. Sustainable development cannot be fully realised without respect for human rights and the rule of law. Transparency and accountability are powerful tools for ensuring citizens’ involvement in policymaking and their oversight of the use of public resources, including the prevention of waste and corruption. Legal empowerment, access to justice and an independent judiciary and universal legal identification can also be critical for gaining access to public services.
