ESID Research Associate Laura Routley has produced an annotated bibliography as part of ESID's inception phase. This publication offers a starting point for investigating some of ESID research themes, drawing together what is known about the politics of what works, and laying out current insights into the key political processes which operate to build effective states and enable inclusive development. The bibliography concentrates on scholarship focused on three areas; Developmental States, Political Settlements and Citizenship Formation. These key concepts are a crucial element of the foundation on which ESID's research will be built.
The annotated bibliography is split into five sections. The first two, Online Resources and Key Crosscutting Documents, give some general starting points for research dealing with the broad sweep issues with which we are concerned here. The three sections which follow outline research conducted on the key areas with which this document is concerned; Developmental States, Political Settlements and Citizenship Formation. Each of these sections has an introduction which lays out some of the general themes and provides information on what is covered by each subsection. Each entry gives the bibliographic details for the piece of work and also a short summary of its contents. There is also an indication of the types of methodologies used and keywords to indicate the main themes covered. As there are many intersections and crossovers between the three areas of research these keywords are used as the basis for an index, which can be found at the end of the document, it is intended that this will help identify pieces of work covering similar issues located in different sections.
