• Description

This publication analyzes the research and project work of the Institute on Governance in civil society-government partnerships from the point of view of both players. The paper first explores the meaning of "governance" and "partnership"; then blends these concepts with good governance principles used by the UNDP and the Institute to create a tool for assessing good governance in partnership arrangements. Finally, the paper draws on the Institute's work in Canada and internationally, to illustrate some of the lessons and best practices in the governance of partnerships.
