This note aims to inform how development practitioners understand inclusive governance. It explores how inclusive governance relates to other established concepts and ideas in international development including good governance, democracy, human rights-based approaches to development, legitimacy and social cohesion. It further explores linkages (interdependencies and possible tensions and dilemmas) between inclusion as process (governance) and inclusion as outcome (development), and considers whether and how inclusive processes may foster more inclusive development outcomes.
