Thomas Carothers

Political party assistance should be a key component of international donors' governance agenda. Efforts to reduce corruption that do not address this domain will be incomplete, as they leave out actors essential to political processes. In this U4 Issue, Carothers reviews traditional approaches to supporting political system-building, and points to some new ways in engaging with political parties.
