RISE webinar: The role of bureaucracies in successful education reform
Credit: RISE

This webinar will focus on the importance of bureaucracies and bureaucrats for improving education in low- and middle-income countries. What is the logic of bureaucracies, how do they ‘think’ and operate? In which ways are bureaucracies a point of reform friction, and what is their contribution to overall system (in)coherence? And how can systems create bureaucratic will and accountability?

The panel will bring together insights from public administration and development research to explore these questions, followed by a Q&A.
