Inequality, Institutions, and Change - The Case of Senegal

Andersson, Jens LU (2014) In Speaking Justice to Power - Ethical and Methodological Challenges for Evaluators p.53-62
Abstract
The chapter studies the relationship between inequality and institutional change in the long-run. The key message is that societies change slowly and unpredictably because of path dependency of economic, political, and social institutions. Prevalent inequalities between different groups rooted in history may help to explain why change does not take place. This has implications for the results that can be expected from development interventions and for the evaluation community that is commissioned to assess them.
