Special iss ues taken up include the institutions for securing property rights and resolving coordination failures the structural basis of power commitment devices and political accountability the complex relationship between democracy and poverty (with examples from India, where both have been durable) decentralization and devolution of power persistence of corruption ethnic conflicts and impediments to collective action (including a study of cooperation in irrigation in Tamil Nadu).
