    Abstract

    Des modèles de décollage économique aux politiques d’ajustement structurel, les préoccupations de l’économie de développement restent vivaces. Le concept de « bonne gouvernance » renouvelle en profondeur le débat sur le développement et la richesse des nations en accordant une place de choix aux institutions. C’est ainsi que ce document se donne pour objectifs de montrer en quoi les institutions et, partant, la « bonne gouvernance », peuvent jouer un rôle important dans le développement. Conscients du fait qu’il ne peut y voir de prospective sans rétrospective, nous allons dans un premier temps, faire le retour sur les théories qui ont marqué l’économie de développement jusqu’aux années 90. Par la suite, nous présenterons, à la lueur des travaux de la nouvelle économie. Models of economic take-off, structural adjustment policies, developmentism, etc., institutions realize the base of development economics. The concept of "good governance" renews the debate on development and the wealth of nations by giving a prominent place to institutions. Thus, this paper gives aims to show how the institutions, and thus the "good governance", can play an important role in socio-economic development. First, we return on such theories that have marked development economics during 40 years after the Second World War. Then, with the help of the new institutional economics, we present the relation between good governance and economic development
