This book provides insights into the development of institutions during
war and peace times in Sudan, and presents an analysis of the impact of
institutional variables on investment and economic growth. The study
combines a new institutional economics framework and a socioeconomic
analysis of investment behavior with an analysis of the process of
post-conflict reconstruction and development in Sudan/South Sudan. The
book contains a wealth of information for policymakers, for the
development aid community and for researchers, based on the results of a
cross-country analysis of panel data for Sudan and the results of survey
data on investment determinants in South Sudan. An agenda for
institutional reform is suggested for Sudan and South Sudan on the basis
of the findings of the study. The book presents valuable discussions on
policy-relevant issues for Sudan and South Sudan, and also indicates areas
of future research for Sudan and South Sudan. This book is dedicated to
the people of Sudan who suffered from long years of civil war in their
country. It is a timely publication, few weeks after the Referendum on the
Independence of South Sudan and just few months towards the Independence
Declaration of South Sudan on July 9, 2011. The book also contains an
agenda for economic cooperation between Sudan and independent South Sudan.
