Who we are
Good Governance Africa is a research and advocacy non-profit organisation with centres across Africa focused solely on improving governance across the continent.
GGA engages in applied research and stimulates critical debate. All our work is based on exploring and advancing the key governance principles of democracy, accountability and transparency, and combining these with upholding the rule of law and respecting human, civil and property rights.
How do we define governance?
GGA believes a country is well governed when three broad requirements are met:
- First, citizens must have a say in how the country is run. This implies that there should be democracy, accountability, and transparency.
- Second, the rule of law and human, civil, minority and property rights should be upheld and enforced by a legitimate government with separate, independent branches of power.
- Third, the government should pursue inclusive and growth-oriented policies.
What is GGA's vision?
We strive to improve the lives of all citizens by promoting enhanced governance on the continent of Africa.
