198747489 – Governments play a key role in the development process, and continually introduce reforms and policies to accomplish developmental objectives. Many of these involvements have limited impact however, schools get constructed but children don’t learn, information technology systems are introduced but not used, plans are created but not implemented. These achievement deficiencies expose gaps in capabilities and feebleness in the process of building state capability.
This book addresses these gaps and weaknesses. Starting by providing evidence of the capability gaps that exist in many countries, showing that governments lack basic capacities even after years of reforms and capacity building efforts. The book also analyses this evidence, detecting capability traps that hold many governments back, related to isomorphic mimicry and premature load bearing. These applications will help students devise policies and reforms that have more bearing than those of the past.
