Leaflet: NIMD’s approach to political economy analysis (PEA)

This leaflet explains NIMD’s approach to doing political economy analysis.

Political economy analysis (PEA) is a lens to help us see how political change can happen. It allows us to zoom into the political game and its playing field. Through it, we can look beyond elections, political decisions and developments, and see why they occur and who drives these processes. We see the rules and incentives of the game, rather than only its players.

PEA improves our ability to react to changes in the political context, through flexible and adaptive programming, and supports us as we develop cutting-edge interventions and influencing strategies.
