Despite the growing body of evidence about quality of government, few studies have applied the results to the outcomes of civil service training programmes. Given that the development of civil service capacity is a key driver of national development, this study explores the nexus between quality of government in Southeast Asian countries and the outcomes of civil service training programmes. Using a survey of Southeast Asian civil servants who participated in capacity development programmes organised by various Korean institutions, this study examines trainees’ perceptions of quality of government, the capacity needs of their civil services, and the limitations of and improvements in existing capacity development programmes. This study offers theoretical and practical implication concerning associations between quality of government and the effectiveness of official development assistance training programmes for civil servants in developing countries.
