Politically Smart and Locally Led Justice Programming: Learning from Other Sectors draws on discussions at a September 2014 workshop held by LDP and Overseas Development Institute (ODI). The briefing paper has been published on the World Bank’s Just Development website and sets out tangible examples of what ‘working politically’ means in practice, as well as recommendations for funders and implementers undertaking politically informed programming in the justice sector.
