The politics of what works in service delivery (Claire Mcloughlin); Political factors in the growth of social assistance (Armando Barrientos and Sony Pellissery); The politics and process of rule of law systems in developmental States (Deval Desai and Michael Woolcock). Part IV: The politics of recognition.
