New Opinions page

Welcome to DLP's new blog, Opinions at dlprog.org, where we hope you'll join us to discuss politics, power, policy and developmental leadership. Posts from DLP's research team and beyond will explore areas including how effective states and legitimate institutions emerge, and the challenges of 'thinking and working politically'. More on themes.

To start us off, Sarah Phillips draws on new research to explore Somaliland's route to peace, including the role of quality secondary education. And Niheer Dasandi considers 'dirty hands' and the dark side of collaboration. View all posts.
