Sample text

Universal agreement — is not the objective (nor probably feasible). The objective is more nuanced: allowing maximum information flow among all stakeholders and gaining some critical mass of support for national policy. The institutional economics literature contends that process matters: how a process is structured affects the outcomes that are possible and probable. Applying this logic, there are certain questions that can be asked about national dialogue processes, with an eye towards forming a view about both areas for focus and overall likely effectiveness.

This calls for greater support by international governmental and non-governmental development policy and co-operation. Political Dialogue at the International Level — the time pressure on the PRSP processes is enormous and is a great obstacle for civil society participation. In this respect, more flexibility on the side of the creditors would be highly desirable; — intensified co-ordination among donors is viewed by the Ugandan side not only as an advantage, but sometimes also as a threat. Consultative Group Meetings should not be used to reinforce the bilateral exercise of power.

This in turn often implies there will be potential “winners” and “losers”. A process organised around relevance for action makes the best use of participants’ time, and leads most quickly to policy changes. Such processes, however, have more room for controversy and conflict than those where hard trade-offs do not need to be discussed. In virtually all cases, implementation of policies which flow from national dialogue is likely to require some change not only of government but of civil society and the private sector as well.
