Food security and inclusive institutions are increasingly acknowledged as fundamental dimensions of development, given their role in promoting long-run economic growth and stability. We explore the nexus between achievements in democratisation and food security in low- and middle-income countries, through an analysis of a panel of 106 countries observed from 1990 to 2012. We find that democratisation processes are associated with improved food security, and that the former systematically precedes the latter, shaping a temporal dependence path. We argue that the inclusiveness of democratic institutions is important in explaining this relationship.

Abstract

Food security and inclusive institutions are increasingly acknowledged as fundamental dimensions of development, given their role in promoting long-run economic growth and stability. We explore the nexus between achievements in democratisation and food security in low- and middle-income countries, through an analysis of a panel of 106 countries observed from 1990 to 2012. We find that democratisation processes are associated with improved food security, and that the former systematically precedes the latter, shaping a temporal dependence path. We argue that the inclusiveness of democratic institutions is important in explaining this relationship.
