Democracy & Governance
Good governance and transparency are the foundations for sustainable development and provide the environment for private investment to thrive. KRL’s approach focuses on needed competencies — from institutional capacity building and policy development to finding the next generation of technologies that reduce human error. KRL has extensive experience in:
- Elections: We use modern campaign techniques and technologies to gather data and prepare recommendations for political parties and candidates. We also develop media strategies for the international press and provide analysis of media coverage.
- Institutions of governance: We seek to marry resources with host-government needs in order to provide institutional and technical support. With World Bank, United Nations, U.S. government, and regional funding, we have developed programs that improve the public sector through training, capacity building, and resource management.
- Anti-corruption initiatives: We provide on-the-ground assessment of anti-corruption efforts and make targeted recommendations on how to increase the effectiveness of anti-corruption bodies. Partnering with anti-corruption commissions and other agencies, we provide support to all aspects of an initiative, including investigative, prosecutorial and judicial capacity building.
