Economic Development & Institutions

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.

The Programme

The programme was launched in 2015 and will run for five years. It is made up of four parallel research activities (RA's) outlined below. Underpinning these research areas is a policy engagement workstream, aiming at facilitating a demand-led research agenda. The programme is generously funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
