This paper explores and shares some of CARE’s experience of governance work, demonstrating outcomes that were achieved, the strategies used to achieve them, and some of the key challenges faced. The experiences and reflections shared here are products of the Governance Action Research (GARI) in which six country offices participated: Angola, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Nepal and Peru. The initiative worked with staff and partners through action research to encourage particpants to reflect on how governance works in their context and to unpack the ways in which CARE’s governance programming impacts upon the lives of the people in that context.
