Mo Ibrahim Foundation Masters Scholarships

The Governance and Statebuilding programme is one of the specialised streams within international development, and takes an interdisciplinary standpoint, combining the theoretical rigour of political economy and the practical experience of development. The good governance agenda occurs now increasingly alongside debate on state-building, which encompasses issues such as accountability and transparency, corruption, conflict, political settlement, human rights, participation, access to justice and democratisation.

 Governance and state-building are of particular interest to governments, nongovernmental organisations and development agencies, as well as to a growing and vibrant academic community.
