This paper is one of a series of background papers which provide context for the Leaders, Elites and Coalitions Research Programme which will be exploring the role of leaders, elites and coalitions in the promotion of economic growth and broad-based, inclusive social development. Underlying this paper is the central hypothesis that leaders, elites and coalitions play a critical role in establishing effective institutions and building effective states, but knowledge and understanding about these processes is slim. The authors set out in this survey to discover the extent to which, if at all, the general literature on 'Leadership' addressed the role of leadership in the promotion of economic growth and social development, with particular (but not exclusive) reference to developing countries.
