Our research on Democracy and Governance investigates the relevance of political institutions, political processes, and political action on economic outcomes and social development. The cluster has recently launced an initiative to study the impact of political inequality (the PINQ initiative), which will study the consequences of unequal access to power and decision-making in developing countries.
