Problem-Driven Political Economy Analysis: The World Bank’s Experience Edited by Verena Fritz, Brian Levy, and Rachel Ort 
Problem-driven political economy analysis can help development practitioners identify policies and strategies that are most likely to overcome difficult development challenges. This volume takes stock of the World Bank's experiences applying this approach.  The eight good practice cases presented in this volume illustrate recent Bank achievements and cover examples from Mongolia, Morocco, Dominican Republic, Zambia, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines.  The cases show how political economy analysis can be applied to specific development challenges and opportunities from different sectors, highlight the range of empirical evidence that can be used and discuss the types of recommendations and follow up actions that resulted.
