Responsive governance and forms of government is one of the research domains within the Resilient Rule of Law programme. In this research project, the effects of responsive governance on the functioning of the rule of law are examined. In different empirical case studies, we examine the workings of responsive forms of governance on a local and regional level, and try to trace the effects of these forms.
Are some forms of governance better equipped than others at addressing societal issues? What are the potential effects of this responsiveness on the organization of government and on the rule of law?
