Research on economic governance studies opportunities for political participation, transparency of policy process and outputs, and responsiveness of government representatives and bureaucrats to citizen input across developing countries.

The Duke Center for International Development's research has focused on how to improve these key features of governance through institutional and policy reforms. A particular area of focus has been on e-governance options that better connect citizens with their leaders through digital platforms for commenting on public laws or delivery of public services. Researchers also study the outcome of governance improvements on economic growth, foreign and domestic investment, redistribution and inequality, and corruption.
