SITE invites to attend the Swedish launch of the World Bank Development Report 2017
The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) together with the World Bank, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs are proud to host the Swedish launch of the World Bank Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law.
Confronting the challenges faced by today’s developing countries requires a rethinking of how to design and implement policies. The report explores why policies and interventions aimed for positive development outcomes succeed well in some contexts, but fail to generate positive results in others. The purpose of the report is to enhance development effectiveness by understanding the politics of policies. The report will be made available at the World Banks website.
We invite you to a broad discussion about ensuring success of policy reforms on Thursday February 2, 14.00 – 16.00. The presentation will allow for questions and discussion which will be moderated by Torbjörn Becker, Director of SITE.
