Further, Greif argues that his unified approach to comparative institutional analysis, which treats institutions and their configurations explicitly as equilibrium phenomena, can highlight the ways an endogenous institution can reinforce or undermine itself. Using this concept, one can gain a better understanding of why institutions sometimes persist even in a changing environment while it is also possible for endogenous change to occur in a rather stable environment. More generally, it also allows us to understand why and how endogenous institutional evolution and changes take place.

26 We have to be aware of the danger of dismissing projects where benefits only accrue after a considerable time lag. 3 37 Overview of the book The remainder of the book consists of seven chapters: one background chapter and six chapters containing case studies. Chapter 2, by Machiko Nissanke, provides background discussions on the evolution of the aid relationships in Sub-Saharan Africa with a view of placing six case studies on aid-funded infrastructure projects included in this volume in the context of the wider literature dealing with the questions of aid effectiveness and aid relationships.

In Vietnam, where ODA increased suddenly in the mid-1990s, its absorptive capacity in managing an increasing number of aid projects was severely tested in the early periods. In this context, institutional spillover effects of learning experiences gained from aid-funded projects to locally funded projects in the subsequent periods have been very valuable and important. Therefore, the chapter argues that the role of aid as a conduit of transfer of intangible assets such as knowledge, know-how and experience is greater than as a provider of financial and physical assets for infrastructure projects and that these intangible assets acquired through ODA-funded projects can have significant institutional spillover effects through inter-project transfer of knowledge and technical and management know-how to locally funded and managed projects in later periods.
