Language
English

The 'institutional turn' in political science has encouraged development scholars to revisit the institutional basis and dynamics of development process, identifying long-term path dependencies in development trajectories and re-examining the ways in which different institutions interact in contemporary dynamics to affect development outcomes. This panel draws together contributions to this institutional turn, providing comparative historical analyses of development processes and critical examination of the role of contemporary institutions in development.
