This report summarizes the Policy Dialogue on Democracy and Service Delivery, which took place in Pretoria, South Africa, on 23–24 November 2015.

The event was timely, as it unfolded in a context of a growing and common concern, among all of the collaborating partners, regarding service delivery challenges in the region and their potential impact on governance and democracy.

The purpose of the deliberations was to allow for wider and deeper reflections on the complex relationship between service delivery and governance, and establish perspectives on policy and research that would be relevant for future engagements.
