2017 World Development Report: Governance and the Law – Governance for Security

Monday 20 February 2017 13:00 to 14:30
IDS Convening Space

In January 2017, the World Bank launched its annual flagship policy report on international development. The new report places a spotlight on the role of governance as a key to overcoming challenges related to security, growth and equity.

In this seminar, Patricia Justino, who contributed to the chapter on ‘Governance for Security,’ will facilitate a participatory discussion on the report’s key findings and messages in relation to violence, conflict and insecurity; the interlinkages between security, governance, and power; and the implications of these findings for future policy and research.
