Peace Security and Development Network: Summary research project
This document provides a summary of an applied research project on Multi-Stakeholder Processes (MSPs), service delivery and state institutions. It is part of the ‘Knowledge Network for Peace, Security and Development’.
The objective of the project is first to generate insight in the cooperation between multiple state and non-state actors for the improvement and the delivery of basic services and utilities, and second to study how such cooperation contributes to the legitimacy of state institutions. The findings will be translated into recommendations for policy makers, practitioners and (international) donors on the question of how multi-stakeholder processes can strengthen the legitimacy of state-institutions.
