A dynamic conversation on politics, development, and change

Save the date for a dynamic conversation on politics, development, and change!

In partnership with the Thinking and Working Politically Community of Practice, The Asia Foundation and Global Partners Governance will bring together speakers from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Malawi, Australia, the UK and more in a conversation hosted by Bridi Rice, from the Development Intelligence Lab, on April 29 at 8:30 GMT.

GPG’s Founder and Board Chair Greg Power will be taking part in the discussion, drawing on insights from his recent book, Inside the Political Mind: The Human Side of Politics and How It Shapes Development.


Inside the Political Mind

Why have efforts to strengthen the quality of governance in some of the world’s most troubled states so often failed?  Because they almost always ignore the human side of politics.

Inside the Political Mind is available now!

Drawing on his experience of working with hundreds of politicians in more than sixty countries, GPG Founder Greg Power explores how social norms, public expectations and the personal interests of MPs influence the path of political development.

Strengthening institutions

GPG works with elected representatives and permanent officials in national, regional, and local government. We have worked on programmes of parliamentary development, government-parliament relations, decentralisation and local government reform across the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe.

Improving policy and impact

The aim of all that work is ultimately to ensure that political institutions improve the quality of policy, legislation, and service delivery. We provide advice to policymakers at every level of government in areas as diverse as tackling human trafficking, anti-corruption, education, health, and human rights.

Managing the process of change

Creating and maintaining that sort of change depends on behaviour more than structure. We draw extensively on insights from the fields of behavioural economics, political analysis and business management to understand and align incentives around the reform of parliament, government, and the public sector.
