The European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) and the World Bank are organising the launch in Brussels of the ‘World Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law’ (WDR), which aims to answer a fundamental question: What makes some policies work while others fail? Frequently, policies that fail to generate development outcomes endure across countries and over time. Putting governance front and centre of the development debate is essential for promoting sustained economic growth and encouraging more equitable and peaceful societies.
You are kindly invited to the presentation of WDR 2017, followed by a discussion on ways forward based on the findings of this report, and on possible implications for the European Union. The event will offer a space for civil society representatives, development practitioners, and EU officials to reflect upon the process by which state and non-state actors interact to design and implement development policies.

Places are limited. A light lunch will be provided.
