I am interested in the role of development aid agencies in their partner countries’ institutional reform politics, and in the related role of knowledge, social stakeholders and public debate. My latest research examined whether and how foreign aid-funded technical expertise was treated as a means of influence in the legislative politics of business taxation reforms in Kyrgyzstan, by the state officials, business leaders and aid actors involved. It explored the ways in which these dynamics were informed by the public, decentralized and participatory dimensions of Kyrgyzstan’s political system.
