Certain countries are cited relatively often as examples of development ‘success’, that is, a set of favourable development outcomes. They are believed to exhibit policies and institutions that could be adapted to less successful countries in the developing world. As such, they might constitute ‘role models’ of development. Role models need not have been successful across every dimension (growth, poverty reduction, democratization, etc.), nor are they required to be bereft of periods of failure and crisis; indeed, their ability to overcome adversity and to move successfully forward constitutes a critical element of their success.
