Strengthening Governance Globally is the fifth volume in the series 'Patterns of Potential Human Progress'. Each volume considers one key aspect of how development unfolds globally and how better to move it in desired directions. This volume identifies the provision of security, the building of government capacity, and the broadening of inclusion of governance on which high-income countries have traditionally made long historical transitions. In contrast, many developing countries today struggle with all three governance transition dimensions simultaneously. Strengthening Governance Globally uses the growing empirical database on governance variables to understand historical change.

-Thomas Carothers, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

"This book is principled, systematic, and very transparent in its forecasting of governance and conflict."
-Kristian Gleditsch, University of Essex and International Peace Research Institute

-Monty Marshall, Director, Center for Systemic Peace and Polity IV Project

"This volume and the International Futures model are outstanding tools for grappling with the ideas of governance and development."
-Evan Hillebrand, University of Kentucky
