Item description for Reforming Africa's Institutions: Ownership, Incentives, and Capabilities by Steve Kayizzi-Mugerwa...

There is not a single African country that did not attempt public sector reform during the 1990s. Governments no longer see themselves as sole suppliers of social services, frequently opting for partnerships with the private sector. Efficiency and choice have entered the language of the planning and implementation units of Africa's line ministries while privatization is no longer the controversial subject it was. There have also been moves toward more open and democratic government. This volume looks at the extent to which the public sector reforms undertaken in sub-Saharan Africa have enhanced institutional capacities across the breadth of government, and to what extent the reforms have been internationalized and defended by governments. The book also reviews the impact of reforms on different African economies and questions whether "ownership" can be attained when countries continue to be heavily dependent on external support.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reforming Africa's Institutions: Ownership, Incentives, and Capabilities?

Beyond good governance  Jun 20, 2003
There is not a single African country that did not attempt public sector reforms in the 1990s. Governments no longer see themselves as sole suppliers of social services, frequently opting for partnerships with the private sector. Efficiency and choice have entered the language of the planning and implementation units of Africa's line ministries, while privatization is no longer the controversial subject it was a decade ago. There have also been moves towards more open and democratic governments.
This book looks at the extent to which reforms undertaken in Sub-Saharan Africa in recent years have enhanced institutional capacities across the breadth of government. To what extent have reforms been internalized and defended by governments? The authors also look specifically at the impact of public sector reforms on these economies and pose the question whether `ownership' can be attained when countries continue to be heavily dependent on external support.
The volume is presented in three parts. The first focuses on the issue of reform ownership; on the issues of governance, the political economy of reform ownership, and the contradictions inherent in using aid as an instrument for enhancing domestic reform ownership. Part two examines the nature of incentives in the African civil service and the reforms undertaken in recent years to raise public sector efficiency in Africa. The third part discusses issues related to institutional capabilities in Africa and how they have been affected by the reforms undertaken in the 1990s, including privatization and movement towards political pluralism.
Steve Kayizzi-Mugerwa has undertaken research on many African countries and published widely on issues related to growth, economic adjustment, and poverty reduction. Formerly an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, he is now attached to the IMF's Independent Evaluation Office in Washington, DC. During 2000-1, he directed the project on Institutional Capabilities, Reform Ownership and Development in sub-Saharan Africa at the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (WIDER) in Helsinki.
