MSI empowers local partners to advance representative and accountable governance that is essential for equitable economic growth, social development and peace. We help to build the skills, systems and institutions to effect democratic reforms, resilience and sustainable development. We seek to address development challenges in environments affected by conflict, state fragility, corruption, criminal violence and violent extremism. Our approach seeks to foster engagement between citizens and their government, recognizing that both the demand and supply for good governance is necessary to provide responsive services and manage divisions in society. Our work in democracy and peace spans the program cycle from assessments and strategies to program design and implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and learning.
