Background and objectives
We are looking for the kind support of online volunteers to translate from Portuguese into English the piece (~11.000 words) is part of a wider study which set out to interpret the interrelation between economic development and institutional change and diffusion, particularly in the case of regulatory institutions. It is mostly a theoretical critique, very enjoyable for an interested reader and development enthusiast. This is a central piece of a wider and both theoretical and empirical project which aims to correlate development and institutional change. It's an importante and quite innovative Project which can offer major practical contributions to developing countries and development studies.

Its work is made available to society through numerous regular publications and seminars.
