Democratic governance is the bedrock of the Centre for Human Rights & Governance’s system of values and standards. We work to optimize democratic governance to help institutions operate according to democratic processes and standards, both internally and in their interaction with other institutions.
CHRG believes that democracy is the only springboard to forming a government that enables peaceful self-correction and enables nations to peacefully resolve their internal disputes through elections, open debate, accountable governance, and the rule of law. In fact, it is governance that has to meet individuals’ needs and not the other way around. The principle of elections, and therefore enforceable accountability, is a cornerstone of democratic governance that the Centre for Human Rights & Governance strives for.
