Searching for successful strategies of change

There is no guarantee for sucess in change processes to democracy under a rule of law and a market economy equipped with sociopolitical safeguards: stagnation, power struggles and state failure are jeopardizing countries on their complex path of transformation. But there are also encouraging examples of good governance in every world region. Since 2003, the BTI is monitoring where and how change is happening.
