Summary: As countries increasingly around the globe embrace democracy, such as recent events of the Arab Spring, a challenge for transitional polities is to build the institutional, policy and service delivery capacity of a government. The lecture explores this challenge, by presenting the case study of South Africa, and offers some comparative insights for emerging democracies. In addition, the lecture will explore the capacity of developing and developed democracies, to address ‘wicked policy problems’ (Rittel and Webber, 1973) such the global financial crisis and argues for good global governance, based on representation and legitimacy in the policy process.
