Aid, Technology and Development : The Lessons from Nepal Hardback

Edited by Dipak Gyawali, Michael Thompson, Marco Verweij

Part of the The Earthscan Science in Society Series series


Over the last 50 years, Nepal has been considered an experiential model in determining the effectiveness and success of global human development strategies, both in theory and in practice.

As such, it provides a rich array of in-depth case studies in both development success and failure.

This edited collection examines these in order to propose a novel perspective on how human development occurs and how it can be aided and sustained.

Aid, Technology and Development: The lessons from Nepal champions plural rationality from both a theoretical and practical perspective in order to challenge and critique the status quo in human development understanding, while simultaneously presenting a concrete framework with which to aid citizen and governmental organisations in the galvanization of human development. Including contributions by leading international social scientists and development practitioners throughout Nepal, this book will be of great interest to students, scholars and practitioners working in the field of foreign aid and development studies.
