    In the standard model of corruption, the
    rich are more likely to pay bribes for their children's
    education, reflecting higher ability to pay. This prediction
    is, however, driven by the assumption that the probability
    of punishment for bribe-taking is invariant across
    households. In many developing countries lacking in rule of
    law, this assumption is untenable, because the enforcement
    of law is not impersonal or unbiased and the poor have

    Afghanistan

    Afghanistan has come a long way since
    emerging from major conflict in late 2001. Important
    political milestones mandated by the Bonn Agreement (two
    Loya Jirgas, a new Constitution, recently the Presidential
    election) have been achieved. The economy has recovered
    strongly, growing by nearly 50 percent cumulatively in the
    last two years (not including drugs). Some three million
    internally- and externally-displaced Afghans have returned

    Burundi

    The study on the sources of rural growth
    in Burundi results from a meticulous work carried out by
    eminent experts of the World Bank in response to a request
    of the Government of Burundi. It describes the global
    environment, which explains poverty aggravation and builds
    proposals to overcome most binding constraints to growth in
    Burundi. This study is an important contribution in the
    fight against poverty, as it identifies ways to resume

    Cambodia

    Cambodia's growth over 1998-2008
    has been remarkable (almost 10 percent per annum for a
    decade). This paper applies a "growth diagnostic"
    approach to understand how this happened and how it can be
    sustained. Past growth has been driven by the coincidence of
    a set of historical and geographic factors (including
    opportunistic policy responses), together with the use of
    natural assets (although in a non sustainable way) and the

    from an examination of local governance of development and
    natural resources. After examining national level adaptation
    plans, particularly the NAPAs (National Adaptation
    Programmes of Action), the paper analyzes the range of
    institutional instruments and relationships visible in

    Croatia

    For Croatia, the challenge is to create
    conditions that will attract investment and produce growth.
