Why are carefully designed, sensible policies too often not adopted or implemented? When they are, why do they often fail to generate development outcomes such as security, growth, and equity? And why do some bad policies endure? The World Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law addresses these fundamental questions, which are at the heart of global development.
