  • 5. What is good about it?
    • Democratic governance is said to be good, and exists when the authority of the government is based on the will of the people and is responsive to them
    • Good governance is equity, participation, pluralism, transparency, accountability, and the role of law

    • Goals are to invest in national policies and to reduce poverty
  • 6. How can we help, support or improve governance?
    • We can raise awareness in people in democratic to seize their right to vote and chose.
    • We can ask a strong organization like the UN help us communicate to governments and prevent corruption.
    • We can ask big multinational countries to donate money to impoverished nations as poverty is one of the main troubles in bad governance.
    • We need transparent governments that are law-abbiding, efficient, and participatory.
    • At the end of 1998 there were 117 electoral democracies, we can increase that number to have each country be a democracy.
