International Security & Foreign Policy

New Generation Leadership and Governance Course and Technologies

Grant Year: 2019


Clare Lockhart, Saša Hezir, Gracia Angulo Duncan, Patricia Austria, and David Thorpe will lead an effort to train political and policy reformers who can build state capacity in developing countries. They will develop a course to teach aspiring reformers or officeholders strategic and operational practices to create a reform agenda and build the institutional capacity to carry it out. They will create an online portal to provide reformers with manuals and practical guidance to enable reform, and develop digital tools to help reformers think through optimal sequencing of reforms, create action plans to drive change at the ground level, and track progress in real time. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a variety of briefing materials.
