Good Governance

One Earth Future believes transparent and inclusive institutions at all levels of governance are necessary for stable and lasting peace. From small village councils to national governments and international organizations, we seek to understand why some institutions are so effective while others are prone to failure. In addition to studying major threats to political institutions like coups and civil wars, One Earth Future also examines how institutions can be used to convene different types of stakeholders and create new opportunities for collaborative governance in the interest of stable peace.
