Improving Governance to Reduce Violence

The U.S. and other donors spend billions each year to improve governance in the name of development for war-torn or fragile countries. But good government is crucial for another reason: its capacity to reduce violence that undermines the very development the international community seeks. Join the U.S. Institute of Peace and the World Bank on June 8 for a discussion of this vital element of the Bank’s “World Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law.” Special sessions will focus on how the ideas apply in Afghanistan, Nigeria and Tunisia.
