How do institutions affect economic development?

The Economic Development & Institutions (EDI) research programme aims to provide evidence and insights into what practical actions can be undertaken to produce institutional changes that will improve a country’s economic development and growth.

The importance of a country’s institutions in shaping its economic development is broadly acknowledged, however research to date has neglected the impact that institutional change has on this development and the resulting policy implications. The EDI programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development, aims to generate high quality research and evidence, at scale, to deliver a seismic shift in understanding this issue.
