Economic policies don’t just have economic consequences, they influence politics as well. The definition and regulation of property rights to land in particular are at the heart of state formation and politics all over the world. In this presentation James Robinson will discuss the inter-connections between land and power and how it may affect the impact of countries’ land policy choices and programs supported by development partners, including the World Bank.
