Economic Development & Institutions

Building a body of evidence and insights into the impacts of institutional changes on economic growth and development.

Our purpose

Despite increasing awareness of the importance of institutions on economic outcomes, there is little evidence on how positive institutional change can be achieved. The Economic Development and Institutions (EDI) research programme aims to fill this knowledge gap by working with some of the finest economic thinkers and social scientists across the globe.

EDI was launched in 2015 and will run for five years. The programme is generously funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
