The political economy of pro poor growth

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Kate Bird

This paper focuses on the political economy challenges to making growth policies pro-poor. It explores: the importance of governance, institutions, the developmental state and corruption in setting the conditions within which pro-poor growth becomes possible (or not); the role of power sharing and downwards accountability in pro-poor policy formulation and implementation; key challenges in policy formation and implementation; and implications for donor and government action.
