Globalization and Development : Rethinking Interventions and Governance, Hardback Book

Globalization and Development : Rethinking Interventions and Governance Hardback

Edited by Arne (Gothenburg University, Sweden) Bigsten

Description

The key challenge for achieving sustained development in developing countries relates to quality of domestic governance, which in turn is strongly affected by external interventions.

Domestic governance includes politics, policy formulation, institution building and policy implementation.

It is important for both international and domestic agents to understand how the interplay between external interventions and domestic governance affects social and economic outcomes. This volume presents a series of studies analysing the links between external interventions and domestic governance in the areas of economic, social and security policy.

Key questions that are addressed here include:How do external interventions in economic, social and security areas affect domestic governance in developing countries?Is aid more effective in decentralised systems of government?What are the interactions between external interventions and domestic governance?How can external agents advance domestic governance?Due to its strong focus on external interventions and domestic governance, this book will be of interest to scholars of development studies across the social sciences, in addition to the fields of economics, political science, sociology and geography.
