Institutional Dynamics and the Support for Agriculture

The main aim of this project is to understand and delineate the institutional support mechanism for agriculture. The special vantage point that this research takes is to understand this support by looking at the hierarchies and networks that were created within the agricultural economy and which have tended to help and hindered the flow of all kinds of resources from the center of policy making to its periphery. This research also builds on the agrarian policy project and relies on the same archival sources that are used in it.
