How do we make sense of governance in a fast-changing and complex world?What are the main issues and components of, and for, good governance? What governance innovations are taking place and what is their impact on policy? And how can we measure governance capacity, performance and outcomes? In The Governance Report 2013, experts assembled by the Hertie School of Governance (Berlin, Germany) offer an analysis of what governance means today and what implications might be drawn by and for policy makers. Focusing in part on challenges in financial and fiscal governance, particularly at the global and European levels, the Report highlights the trade-offs governance actors face in responding to crises and in putting in place policies and institutions that avoid such crises in the first place. Helmut K. Anheier, Dean of the Hertie School and founder of the Center for Civil Society at UCLA, will present the Report’s findings at the Center in discussion with Nathan Gardels, Berggruen Institute on Governance.
