Cambridge Governance Labs is a new interdisciplinary initiative (based at Hughes Hall and directed by John Barker) to promote good governance in developing countries. It does so by focusing on decision-making and the factors that enhance or degrade decision-making capability. Good governance relies on sound decisions and the right balance of power between society and its leaders. By equipping citizens and leaders alike to make better decisions, we seek to enhance productivity, reduce conflict and empower stakeholders to work more harmoniously towards common social and development objectives. International cross-disciplinary events will bring together academics and practitioners from across the University and beyond. Research and event findings will then be translated into practical tools to be tested in pilot projects in Africa and made freely available online and through publications.
