Key findings include:
People across the world care deeply about governance, but some dimensions of governance emerge as more important to them than others.
People’s top priority is for governments that are honest and effective and can deliver on their needs and expectations. Political freedoms are also important, but remain secondary to concerns about performance and the delivery of goods and services.
A post-2015 framework that responds to these views would focus more on the the capacity of governments to deliver than on specific institutional forms, with targets designed to strengthen performance across other goals.
