Outlines the key developments and institutions of Botswana as it has evolved since independence in 1966; a successful marriage of some of the traditional forms of political organization with those adapted from the West. Looks at the political and legal history of Botswana and presents some of the main problems in governance which need addressing. Work improvement teams and the Botsawana National Productivity Centre have been introduced to address some of the issues. Local governance is discussed. Public sector reform until 2002 will mainly address rationalization of administration, privatization and productivity improvements.
