Inclusive Institutions: Topic Guide


Institutions are the formal and informal rules and norms that structure citizens’ rights, entitlements, opportunities and voice. How can policymakers and practitioners support inclusive institutions to promote development that ‘leaves no-one behind’? What do we know about what has – or hasn’t – worked, and where? This Topic Guide synthesises the evidence, debates and approaches that emerge from the literature.
