The Governance Report 2016

Editor: Hertie School of Governance

Available since 31 March 2016 through Oxford University Press and in book stores

Infrastructure is a fundamental driver of economic growth and social development. Yet, unmet investment needs coexist with 'white elephants' and 'bridges to nowhere', while major construction projects face huge cost overruns and citizen protest. The governance of infrastructure is already complex, involving a wide array of stakeholders and strategies. Drawing on novel survey data and case studies from around the world, The Governance Report 2016 examines the capacity of public administration to manage infrastructure investments, highlights governance innovations, and provides guidance for public governance of infrastructure. The Report offers information, analysis, and tools for policy-makers, practitioners, and academics interested in infrastructure and other large-scale projects.

The Governance Report 2016 is part of a joint undertaking with contributors from the Hertie School of Governance and the OECD.
