Democracy, Rights, & Governance

The Democracy, Rights, & Governance Workgroup is a group of individuals who are actively engaged in the ongoing evolution and development of human rights and democracy associated with international development, including the role of civil society. With events ranging from strengthening health governance to dealing with corruption, to advancing human rights and rule of law, and evolving political analysis, this workgroup aims to inform and educate its members on any and all development issues that relate to democracy, rights, and governance, as well as how civil society can help shape economic and social outcomes. The Workgroup also works to examine principles important to democracy, human rights, and governance, including transparency, accountability, participation, and inclusion.
