We ask three main guiding questions in this review: (a) what types of informal, traditional or religious authorities/institutions organise citizen interaction and engagement with the state in different parts of the world; (b) why do these institutions matter from a policy perspective and what are their implications for governance; and (c) from where do they draw legitimacy to engage with the state on behalf of communities and to take on various governance functions?
Why it is important to build Informal Local Governance Institutions into the design, implementation and evaluation of our interventions.
The objective of this analytical framework is to support a politically informed and context-tuned analysis of a particular range of non-state institutions involved in local governance processes.
