Pathfinding papers played a vital role in setting the EDI research agenda and informing directions of enquiry for the development of institutional case studies, randomised control trials and case studies for the programme.
In January 2020, twenty of the pathfinding papers were published by Princeton University Press as The Handbook of Economic Development and Institutions. The book was edited by EDI’s Research Directors, François Bourguignon and Jean-Philippe Platteau and EDI Scientific Committee members, Jean-Marie Baland and Thierry Verdier. It is available for purchase at Princeton University Press.
