In this backdrop the Citizens` Report on Governance and Development 2007, evaluates the four key institutions of governance in India: the Parliament, the judiciary, the policy-making institutions (the executive) and the institutions of local self-government.

Through the lens of fundamental economic and social values—such as Rights, Development, Freedom and Security—this report examines the sensitivity, efficiency and efficacy of the institutions in enforcing rights and ensuring delivery of public services.

While reviewing the major developments of the year and probing the dynamics of democratisation, the 2007 Report also:
- highlights the casual and inadequate manner in which parliamentary questions are posed and answered;
- analyses various reform measures and welfare schemes adopted by the government while cautioning against putting public resources into private projects, under the mantra of public-private partnership;
- examines some significant court verdicts and argues that solutions for the judical system should have a demand-orientation, which protects the poor; and
- observes that the State Governments` performance in the process of decentralisation leaves much to be desired, despite the consensus about objectives.
