Institute for State Effectiveness (ISE)
The Institute for State Effectiveness (ISE) is a non-governmental organization based in Washington, D.C. that seeks to address the challenge of accountability and governance through a system-building approach across governments, markets and people.
To address the challenge of accountability and governance through a system-building approach across governments, markets and people.
Underlying many of today’s challenges is a systemic crisis in accountability and effectiveness of governance. We believe the opportunity lies in creating approaches to equip leaders and managers with the knowledge, skills and tools to create inclusive policies and accountable institutions.
Years of field work in frontier and emerging countries, leading teams and developing programs at the World Bank, and studying “what works” around the world, led us to discover a set of approaches that work. Today we are focused on developing and systematizing this know-how to support leaders and organizations at the forefront of policy design and implementation. We aim to make cutting-edge methodologies, tools and rigorous metrics available to the global community, by sharing methods that are less costly yet more impactful than many current approaches.
To develop and refine the know-how and toolsets across:
Governments: Realizing Capacity
To build systems across the levels and functions of government
Markets: Building Markets
To promote growth and opportunity through fostering inclusive markets
People: Fostering Inclusion
