B5RD1619 - Institutions, governance and development -

The opportunities of individuals are framed by the environment they leave in and the development of countries depends among other things on the type of governance and institutions in place, as well as on the interaction of countries with the rest of the world. The goal of this course is to provide the students with an understanding of what institutions are, how they interact with development and how they frame individual behavior. It will also provide an overview of governance may or may not change with interaction with other countries and how this may in turn impact development. Part of the course will also be devoted to analyzing the causes and consequences of civil wars.

By the end of this course, students will know what the seminal papers on institutions, governance and development are and how they see institutions and governance interact with development, as well as the most recent evolutions in this literature. They will also be able to discuss what the empirical challenges specific to this field are, and how they have been tackled by the authors. Additionally, students will know what the remaining open questions in this field are, which should be very relevant for students interested in writing their master thesis on this topic.
