How the aid industry works : an introduction to international development by Arjan de Haan( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 264 libraries worldwide
International development is big business. Official global aid flows from North to South are over $100 billion annually. China and India, former aid recipients, are rapidly entering the field as aid providers themselves, and international charity is being redefined with the resources of private donors like the Gates Foundation, for example, outstripping the annual budget of long-time donors like the UK, Canada or the World Health Organization. Lacking in the literature on international development is an introductory text that provides an overview of the practices of the 'business' of development. "How the Aid Industry Works" provides a basic description of what aid practices are and how they evolved. The arguments of both proponents and opponents of aid are presented and analyzed, along with real-life examples of projects and programs in context. Ideal for undergraduate and graduate students encountering the subject of development for the first time, the book also serves as an overview for development practitioners who want a handy reference covering the universe they inhabit. -- Publisher description
Reclaiming social policy : globalization, social exclusion and new poverty reduction strategies by Arjan de Haan( Book )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 221 libraries worldwide
"Processes of globalization have made national social policy increasingly important. For successful integration into the world economy, countries across the world - and particularly those that are the poorest - need better policies for social protection, health, education and labour markets. This book argues that international development should be more forceful in supporting the capacity for public policy formulation and implementation."--Jacket
Inclusive states : social policy and structural inequalities by Anis A Dani( Book )
19 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
"This book defines structural inequality as a condition arising from unequal status attributed to a category of people in relation to others, a relationship perpetuated and reinforced by unequal relations in roles, functions, decision rights, and opportunities. Inclusive states are those that direct policies to address the needs of all, that respect the rights of citizens to exercise voice and influence on which services are provided and how they are delivered, and that have an interest in strengthening the social contract with their citizens." "This book highlights two key challenges for social policy. First, policy design needs to take into account the weaknesses of basic state functions in many developing countries, since these have important ramifications for social policy outcomes. Second, in most developing countries, social structures marked by historically rooted structural inequalities pose significant challenges to the provision of services and require a long-term commitment to address the underlying questions and problems."--Jacket
The financial crisis and developing countries : a global multidisciplinary perspective ( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 182 libraries worldwide
Using heterodox and mainstream methodologies, the book develops a multidisciplinary perspective on the crisis, showing empirical impacts on the poor and vulnerable. It examines how the crisis continues to change our concepts of development, critically discusses mainstream approaches, and analyses (global) governance responses including of the G20. The contributors critically assess the measures taken to deal with the crisis, and reveal that many elements that have led to crisis (inequality, inappropriate international financial architecture, structural imbalances) have not been dealt sufficiently, and as a result new crises will continue to emerge. -- Back cover

Narratives of Chinese economic reforms : how does China cross the river? ( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
Rapid growth in the Chinese economy over the past three decades poses puzzles and challenges to neo-classical economic theory, as policies implemented during the reform process were often unorthodox. Although the Chinese experience has been widely studied, myths and questions about these reforms remain. To fill in the knowledge gap, and to inform a process of learning from China's development successes, this book features a series of case studies on the policy process of different initiatives, including rural industrialization, dual-track price reform, migration policy, village elections and fiscal reform. Uniquely, many of the authors of the case studies were deeply involved in these reforms, either through direct policymaking or through providing analytical and technical support that led to these policy changes. They provide a first-hand account of how the political processes occurred, how social and political entrepreneurs shaped the choices and sequences of various reforms, and how the rigidities and sometimes erroneous beliefs were overcome.

Urbanisation and urban poverty : a gender analysis by Rachel Masika( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Urbanisation and urban growth have accelerated in many developing countries in the past few years. While natural population growth has been the major contributor to urbanisation, rural-urban migration continues to be an important factor. The processes of urbanisation and the nature and scale of rural-urban migration have to some extent been shaped by gender roles and relations. While male migration has been the most predominant form of migration, in parts of Latin America female migration is common and has been influenced by decisions in rural households over who should migrate and for what reason. In other parts of the world, particularly South East Asia, the demand for female labour has meant that more women are migrating in search of employment
