Supporting the Development of Institutions - Formal and Informal Rules. An Evaluation Theme Basic Concepts
UTV Working Paper
Gun Eriksson Skoog
In 2004, Sida's Department for Evaluation and Internal Audit (UTV) launched an evaluation theme on support for the development of institutions - formal and informal rules. This UTV Working Paper presents two documents. The first one - the Thematic Paper - introduces and motivates the evaluation theme, and presents the central ideas behind it. The second document - the Conceptual Paper - introduces the basic concepts and a perspective on institutions and institutional development. Both documents set the stage for the evaluation theme. They also serve as a point of reference for reflection and dialogue on issues concerning support for the development of institutions among Sida staff and its partners as well as for subsequent evaluations.
