'This is a fascinating and informative book: nothing less than a new guide to modern development cooperation. It shows us how the fight against poverty works in a world barreling towards multipolarity. It foretells a new paradigm based on the experiences of the old and the new approaches of the emerging economies in the world. Provocative and challenging.'
Bert Koenders, UN Undersecretary General and former Minister of Development Cooperation, The Netherlands


'With some large emerging economies assuming an active role alongside traditional 'donors', global development discourse has become more contentious. Featuring top experts from seven countries, this excellent collection reflects these debates. It also explores what values and institutions might realistically coordinate the development efforts of disparate partners which might otherwise impede, cancel or duplicate one another.'
Thomas Pogge, Leitner Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs, Yale University





The current framework of development cooperation is dominated by the experiences of industrialized countries. But emerging economies have begun to accelerate their own development programmes, and attempts to bring them into existing aid models have been met with caution and reservation.

This expert, topical volume explores the development policies of Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa, analysing how South-South cooperation has evolved and where it differs from traditional development cooperation. This vital new collection brings together first-hand experience from these countries to provide a forward-looking analysis of the current global architecture of development cooperation and of the possible convergence of traditional and emerging development actors.
