The Bangladesh Institutional Diagnostic was officially started in September 2018. It is led by Selim Raihan, the Executive Director of the South Asian Network for Economic Modelling (SANEM), together with François Bourguignon, Research Director of the Economic Development and Institutions (EDI) programme.
The methodology for designing the Institutional Diagnostics tool is based on in-depth case studies of a few countries, aimed at comprehensively exploring the relationship between the characteristics and the functioning of a country’s institutions and its economic development performance and constraints. The study builds on the methodology developed for institutional diagnostics conducted in Tanzania and Benin, incorporating lessons from each.
