Examining the policy and institutional features of emerging developmental regimes in Africa.
Two ground-breaking international research programmes, each with a five-year track record, have launched a new collaboration.
Initiating and sustaining developmental regimes in Africa brings together Tracking Development, led by the African Studies Centre in Leiden, Netherlands together with the University of Leiden’s leading specialists in Southeast Asian studies, and Africa Power and Politics, led by the Overseas Development Institute, London.
Developmental Regimes in Africa (DRA) explores the policies and governance conditions that are needed if Africa is to match the economic and social achievements of Southeast Asia. It stimulates debate on the vital implications of research findings on this issue for the future of development in Africa. DRA is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
