The effect of Land Tenure Reforms on Trust, Cooperation and Conflictual Attitutes: Survey and Experimental Investigations in Rural Benin.
This project investigates the issue of how legal and institutional changes influence the behaviour of stakeholders effected. Specially, the project proposes to identify these effects by using a series of small-scale case studies in a West African coutnry, and by taking advantage of the unique institutional evenvironment offered by this setting. Indeed, while understanding the effects of legal changes on people’s behaviour is an issue of primary importance not only for developing economies, but also for developed market economies, nonetheless the complexity our societal and institutional arrangement makes in general impossible to identify these effects by simply observing the societies where we live.
