Balancing and applying technical knowledge with an understanding of the political and institutional feasibility of reforms are two of the most critical skills in public policy and management. Many government reformers and their programs in the developing world (including those with international donor support) have failed in great part because they have not taken into consideration the influence and impact of a countryâ€™s political economy. Dr. Bolongaita will discuss his current research in developing and applying an analytical framework to enhance government effectiveness based in part on his work in several countries, notably West Bank/Gaza, Yemen, Morocco, Jordan, Philippines, and Indonesia.
