These are the questions addressed in this book which is the result of a symposium titled 'Elections, Accountability,and Democratic Governance in Africa' held at Cornell University April 20-21, 2012. It contains four parts: Part 1: Institutions and concepts of governance. Part 2: Constitution-making, elections, and conflict settlement. Part 3: Local governance and citizenship. Part 4: Political economy and corruption. Contributors: Göran Hyden, Mamoudou Gazibo, Charles M. Fombad, Coel Kirkby, Christina Murray, Jeffrey Conroy-Krutz, Rachel Beatty Riedl, J.
