This thesis investigates institutions and their role in determining health and economic development outcomes in Vietnam. Building on recent progress in development economics, it explores (i) whether institutions interacted with conflict shocks to result in differential impacts on the health of the population, (ii) whether attitudes towards the economic and social inclusion of people with disabilities are linked to the prevalence of disabilities in the local neighbourhood, and (iii) whether the performance of family businesses during economic transition can be traced back to past institutions.
