This brief suggests links among government communication capacity, legitimate public authority, and good governance
This brief suggests links among government communication capacity, legitimate public authority, and good governance; advances basic definitions and key dimensions (including a rudimentary framework and draft diagnostic tool); and raises critical issues regarding government communication capacity. The closing section of the brief is offered to development professionals—particularly governance and public sector specialists who manage and support reform efforts—to help them consider the potential contributions of government communication capacity to their own efforts, regardless of the level of government or sectoral focus.
