Chapter Summary

The economic growth and poverty reduction rates achieved in a set of Southeast Asian countries outstripped African countries. Tracking Development's findings coincide with other current research programmes in the field of comparative development, including the consortium the author coordinates, Africa Power and Politics (APPP), and the Danish-led Elites, Production and Poverty (EPP) project. The Danish-led EPP programme offers a coherent middle-range theory about the conditions under which African ruling elites give effective support to productive sectors, including agricultural and livestock sectors. The Africa Power and Politics Programme has advanced equivalent propositions about the form developmental regimes are likely to take, focusing on national business. All three programmes coincide on certain points, including the observation that technocratic bodies awarded selective political protection and support are key factors in the right sort of policy implementation.

Keywords: Africa Power and Politics Programme; Danish-led EPP programme; economic growth rate; poverty reduction rate; Southeast Asian countries
