From Policy to Institutional Design
The concluding chapter of this book offers a synthesis of the theoretical and empirical findings of our research, which could be used to improve public accountability in oil producing countries. It emphasizes the role of institutions in policy design. Section 1 summarizes the findings regarding the policy design framework. It draws from the resource curse thesis to the policy design, then it recalls the basics of a realist approach to policy design and it concludes with a presentation of the causal mechanism of public accountability deficits. Section 2 presents a point-by-point comparison of the implications of resource nationalism for agenda setting, policy formulation, cross-sectorial coordination, politics interplays and policy outcome.
