Supporting Open Moments for Country Transformation

Grant Year: 2020


Clare Lockhart, Saša Hezir, and Pat Austria Ramsey will lead an effort to test whether a new development paradigm, based on enabling reformist forces to frame and carry out state-building and development, can be deployed in fragile states. They will undertake baseline research on countries with opportunities for reform, engage leaders and civil society in several countries to develop a common vision and programmatic agenda, and develop a database of reform strategies that enables leaders to design and monitor their programs.
