My paper “Copying informal institutions: the role of British colonial officers during the decolonization of British Africa” is now available as First View at the Journal of Institutional Economics. I argue that availability of British personnel in African colonies before and after independence explains parts of the variation in the effectiveness of imported British legislation.
