Research over the last five decades across many countries points to the state of institutions being the most important determinant of economic progress and development. Critically, success depends on ensuring good systems for government policy development, M&E and management of community, cities and organizations. Several Nobel’s have been awarded for this research. PIDE’s series on institutional reform is important to generate a national debate on this important notion of getting the government right. The discussion on any such institution should therefore not be seen as a critique. Instead, this should be a regular subject of public policy research in all our universities.
