This study looks into the issue of constrained growth in rural Tanzania in spite of the economic and political reforms implemented during the last 10-15 years. To explain the slow growth and modest effects of economic reforms in rural Tanzania, the institutional set-up is investigated, particularly at the local level. This perspective is often neglected in mainstream analysis. Through this perspective, the study provides new important insights to research on rural dynamics in Africa.
