Booming interest in the links between law and development can be clearly seen in the hundreds of articles and monographs published in the last decade, ranging from Rule of Law Reform, to Neo-Institutional Development, to Transitional Justice.
This book picks up the debate as it stands today and seeks to advance it along several lines, identifying how development and innovation can be fostered or hindered by existing or new legal infrastructures. The book includes eleven original contributions from senior and junior scholars, and is divided into two parts, the first focusing on theoretical frameworks and the second presenting several case studies on various institutional aspects. A particular strength of this part is its broad geographical coverage, which encompasses the legal frameworks in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia.
The contributions collected in this book will be of value to a broad readership. Academic scholars will find useful information on lessons learned from reforms implemented in different areas and come to better understand the methodological hurdles involved in reform assessment. Policymakers in national and international organizations can draw on these studies when designing new programs. Lastly, practitioners in developed and developing countries can use these contributions to promote the success of current or new initiatives.
