Recensies en Artikelen

This volume provides the most comprehensive analysis available of the core issues on the global development agenda. All of the most difficult challenges are addressed - including the problems of development orthodoxy; the potential for corporate, NGO and civil society partnerships; the impact of the rise of China and India on aid, trade and investment; how best to engage in postwar peace and state building - and in each case novel answers provided. Both beginners and veterans in this field will benefit enormously from its insights.

Doing Good or Doing Better

Development Policies in a Globalising World

'Goed doen' kan een stuk beter volgens de Wetenschappelijke Raad voor het Regeringsbeleid. Niet armoedebestrijding maar ontwikkeling zou de doelstelling moeten zijn van ontwikkelingssamenwerking. Het ‘beter doen’ betekent bovendien minder moraliseren, bescheidener en pragmatischer interveniëren, minder voorschrijven hoe het moet en maatwerk leveren. Landen moeten hun eigen ontwikkelingspad volgen, niet het onze. Deze verkenning is de opmaat voor het rapport Minder pretentie, meer ambitie.
