Resumo

Durante os últimos quatro anos, evidenciou-se a necessidade de líderes confiáveis que possuam integridade e coragem para lidar com as necessidades e desigualdades da sociedade nos EUA, assim como a necessidade de um governo confiável. Uma pandemia global e uma economia enfraquecida tornaram altamente improvável que os
governos em todo o mundo voltem ao velho normal, mas para onde vamos a partir daqui? Com base na experiência nos EUA, discuto quais esforços são necessários para reconstruir a accountability, governos dignos de confiança e a confiança nas instituições públicas em todo o mundo. Discuto o que o exercício de accountability envolve e descrevo como a elaboração de políticas públicas pautada em evidências pode apoiar tanto a accountability quanto a construção de confiança. Também destaco alguns desafios e oportunidades para construir um governo confiável e aumentar a confiança no governo.
