|Title:||Can the Design of Community-Driven Development Reduce the Risk of Elite Capture? Evidence from Indonesia|

|Abstract:||Community-driven development (CDD) projects have motivated both large amounts of funding from international development agencies and a number of general critiques centering on the potential susceptibility of decentralized projects to local elite capture. Drawing on case analysis and surveys fielded in 250 Indonesian sub-districts, this paper subjects the design logic of a CDD project to close empirical testing. Results suggest that while CDD projects can help create spaces for a broader range of elite and non-elite community leaders to emerge, elite control of project decision making is pervasive. However, its effects can be influenced by project-initiated accountability arrangements, such as democratic leadership selection. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.|
