Professional Certificate in Governance and Accountability
23rd - 27th October 2017, London, UK

Welcome


Accountable governance is crucial to ensuring that the state has the capacity to respond to the needs of its citizens, in an inclusive and equitable manner. The empowerment of society with the ability to hold their governments to account has become a crucial point of debate as the world moves closer toward the goals of the UN's Post-2015 Development Agenda. 


Course Overview

This course has been designed primarily for those working in the public sector, across all departments and sectors, to enhance institutional knowledge of the mechanisms for governance and accountability.

Through practical case studies, workshops and discussions with leading practitioners in the field, this programme provides the essential skills to strengthen institutions. Participants will gain crucial knowledge of international and national frameworks, methods of empowering citizens and minorities, alongside monitoring frameworks amongst other issues. Examining topical issues such as whistleblowing, gender responsiveness and transparency, participants will benefit from best practice case studies alongside knowledge of the UN's post-2015 agenda, essential to transparent and effective governance.
