How to Improve Governance in Sub-Saharan Africa?

Siméon Maxime Bikoue


The aim of this paper is to try to explain governance failures in Sub-Saharan Africa and to identify reforms which can lead to good governance. The failures are mainly due to institutions that do not work properly, corruption, and lack of real democracy. Governance reforms can be both institutional and political. The political reforms should promote and reinforce democratic practices. Institutions should guarantee the rule of law and limit the elite’s economic and political power.

Keywords: Governance – Development – Sub-Saharan Africa – Reforms
