Institutions, Gouvernance et Développement

Abstract : As macroeconomic stabilisation and structural adjustment policies haven't been particularly successful, it becomes more and more necessary to consider extra economic parameters' role in the growth process. In this context, the governance (with all that it recovers as balance powers, rational management of resources, transparency of rules, involvement of civil society, etc.) has become a key variable in the development analysis of the developing countries. Closely related to that of institutions, this notion of governance is a polysemous one. But in spite of its polysemy, the concept of governance is currently the core question of contradictory debates about the use made by the international financial organizations of the idea of "good governance". The purpose of this paper is to deepen the reflections proposed in these debates, in order to see how "good governance" may or may not be an appropriate response to the issue of economic convergence at the international level (i.e. the catching up problematic of the industrialized countries by developing ones).
