The latest PhD defence from our part-time GPAC² programme looked at ‘Mozambique Governance Assessments in the Context of Aid Effectiveness Discourse’. Laura Torvinen, who previously worked for UNDP and is now a senior advisor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Finland, defended successfully on 21 November 2013. Her thesis asked how quality of governance may be linked to aid effectiveness, what basic issues are missed by donor assessments, and how non-state actors can be integrated in both policy making and assessment. See the photos, video and abstract for more details.
