Governance and Law Programs

The Asia Foundation’s Governance and Law programs support Asian initiatives to build more effective and responsive governance in areas that can expand liberty and justice, accelerate sustainable economic and social development, and reduce the incidence of violent subnational conflict. We do this through programming in:

  • Governance
    (local/municipal governance, counter corruption, central executive institutions, parliamentary development, constitutional development)
  • Law and Justice
    (strengthening and reform of formal and informal law and justice mechanisms, supporting efforts to increased community safety and security, particularly through community-oriented policing, and programs aimed specifically at empowering and protecting the rights of marginalized populations)
  • Conflict and Fragile Conditions
    (subnational conflict, peacebuilding, and civil military relations)
  • Elections
    (free and fair elections and democratic practice, open flows of information, and political parties)
