Abstract

The paper is based on the premise that effective institutional reforms for service delivery require a carefully-considered institutional"fitting"process as opposed to transplantation of"international best practices."The paper asks how the specific institutional contexts of a given country limit options for service delivery reforms, and therefore how a feasible set of reform options may vary systematically across countries.
