Government capacity and governance capacity are the new concepts that have recently entered the literature of state management and political science. The existing literature in this ground is neither comprehensive nor homogeneous. This article intends to study different dimensions of capacity and, based on the findings, introduce a model for examining it.
Governance capacity is manifested in such dimensions as the capacity of a state in designing, implementing and assessing policies and super policies. The innovative point in this article is the introduction of a model on governance capacity, which has not been done in the previous researches. In the past studies, based on the context of the related study, scholars have had a micro view on the governance subject, and no comprehensive view to include all dimensions of governance has been considered. This inadequacy is removed by the outcomes of the present article.
This article consists of two parts. The first part includes the review of theoretical literature about governance capacity and theoretical fundamentals of the concept. The second part introduces a model, which has been examined by the data collected from different countries.
