The rising public expectation by the spread of democracy, globalisation, and informatisation has required good governance through government capacity and enhanced trust in government, along with democratic decision-making in government, private sector, media and civil society
Against this backdrop, the 6th Global Forum on Reinventing Government, co-organised by the Government of Republic of Korea and the United Nation, adopted with strong endorsement of the participants the ‘Seoul Declaration on Participatory and Transparent Governance’, which called for the need of a specialised organisation for conducting research on governance and disseminating research results. As follow-up, United Nations Governance Centre (UNGC) was established through the technical cooperation and the trust fund agreement between the United Nations and the Government of the Republic of Korea.
In this context, this report aims to develop a blueprint for the organisational development and key activities of UNGC, with focus on detailed direction and strategy of activities.
