Abstract:Understanding the role of institutions in fostering growth and development is important for all economies, but critical for developing countries where such institutions are often embryonic and the development challenge quite daunting. Nor has the requisite nature of such institutions been non-controversial historically. It is with this challenge in view that the current special issue of Journal of African Economies on 'Institutions and African Economies' has been produced. It contains the following articles: (1) The new institutionalism and Africa, by Robert H. Bates, Steven A. Block, Ghada Fayad and Anke Hoeffler; (2) Growth of African economies: productivity, policy syndromes and the importance of institutions, by Augustin Kwasi Fosu; (3) Resource rents, democracy, corruption and conflict: evidence from sub-Saharan Africa, by Rabah Arezki and Thorvaldur Gylfason; (4) Addressing the natural resource curse: an illustration from Nigeria, by Xavier Sala-i-Martin and Arvind Subramanian; and (5) Institutions and job growth in African manufacturing: does employment protection regulation matter? by Louise Fox and Ann Maria Oviedo.
