Impact: Governance

International security. Global health. Economic development. They are essential for a safer, more peaceful world. And they all hinge on good governance. Without it, corruption festers, public needs are unmet and a society can collapse. FSI scholars conduct fieldwork in some of the world’s most unstable places and collaborate with colleagues across Stanford’s campus to develop a deeper understanding of what it takes to make a government work well.
