Time:  12:30 – 13:30
Venues in Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town (See below for videoconferencing facilities)

The provision of services is at the heart of contemporary governance and public administration. However, and quite understandably, many states continue to face difficult challenges not just in providing good and quality services but in containing various negating factors in the delivery process. 

The seminar will focus on three key themes concerning the problem of poor quality, low integrity and widespread abuse in service delivery processes, namely: a) corruption and service provision; b) promoting client-centered and participatory approaches and; c) enhancing state capacity.  The aim is to provoke a discussion around ways African public administrations can further improve their service delivery processes drawing on the lessons of recent international experiences.
