The 2013 Governance Report highlights:


The Governance Report 2013

Editor: Hertie School of Governance

Published by Oxford University Press

This compact report is about the state of governance, i.e. the effective, efficient, and reliable set of legitimate institutions and actors dedicated to dealing with matters of public concern. Emerging along with the changing conditions of governance in the early 21st century are numerous approaches on how to improve governance and, ultimately, policy outcomes. The Report—the first in a series of annual editions published by Oxford University Press—explores global challenges, the reasons behind seemingly lacklustre responses and what can be done; examines the challenges of financial and fiscal governance focusing on the trade-offs policy actors face and ways to address them; analyses governance innovations and their potential for success; and assesses existing indicators of governance, while proposing a new framework for collecting, interpreting and applying governance-related information.

Governance Challenges and Innovations: Financial and Fiscal Governance

Editor: Helmut K. Anheier

Published by Oxford University Press

Few would doubt that the conditions of governance have changed—and continue to change—as the early 21st century seems to have entered a period of profound uncertainty. Yet, at the same time, the world seems alive with a cacophony of approaches—old and new—on how to improve governance and, ultimately, policy outcomes. This collection—the first in a series of annual editions—seeks to address the implications of the current state of the world in terms of “good governance”, i.e. the effective, efficient, and reliable set of legitimate institutions and actors dedicated to dealing with matters of public concern, be it in the field of financial markets (the focus of this edition), health care, security, or migration, and across local, national and international levels.  Researchers at The Hertie School of Governance (Berlin, Germany) and other experts examine the current state of governance challenges and innovations from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives. This edition features a special set of chapters on the challenges of financial and fiscal governance, the trade-offs faced by governance actors, and the new arrangements that have emerged or are required to not only address the ongoing crisis but also ensure greater stability in the future. This special section is complemented by chapters introducing basic concepts and models; conceptualising governance innovation and introducing key examples; and assessing existing indicators of governance, while proposing a new framework for collecting, interpreting, and applying governance-related information.
