The millennium development goals and beyond : international assistance to the Asia-Pacific by Simon Feeny( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 144 libraries worldwide
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are a set of internationally agreed targets to improve the well-being of the poor in developing countries by 2015. Many countries in the Asia-Pacific region are not on track to achieve these goals and the book argues that many countries need to tailor the MDGs in order to be realistic and to maintain public and international support. Further, while responsibility for the achievement of the MDGs rests largely with the governments of developing countries, the international community has an important role to play. This book examines the role of government aid donors and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). It argues that a country-specific approach to the MDGs is required and this is demonstrated by examining the role of the international community in assisting with the MDGs in four individual country case studies

Millennium development goals : looking beyond 2015 by Matthew Clarke( Book )

In the year 2000, the international community agreed to a framework to address global poverty. This framework, known as the Millennium Development Goals, was time-bound with an end date of 2015. With this end now in sight, the international community is focusing on the achievement of these goals. However, it is also very important that consideration now turns to what will follow the MDGs after 2015. Millennium Development Goals: Looking Beyond 2015 provides a critical analysis of the MDGs and discusses a range of issues that must be considered by the international community in determining what

Attitudes to national identity in Melanesia and Timor-Leste : a survey of future leaders in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Timor-Leste by Michael Leach( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"This book examines the attitudes of tertiary students in Melanesia and Timor-Leste to national identity and key issues of nation-building. Their views are pivotal to understanding the challenges of building a more cohesive sense of national identity and political community in these states. Melanesian countries show a relatively high degree of similarity in their responses to the surveys on national identity carried out by the authors, but with key differences attributable to particular historical, regional or linguistic legacies of colonial rule. The ongoing importance of traditional authority and kastom/adat in conceptions of political community and identity is evident in all four case study sites, and in each case matches indicators of respect for modern state authority. Although different for each site, the authors' findings also illustrate the importance of students' geographical region of origin, language orientation and gender in explaining key differences in attitudes towards national identity. The book demonstrates that strong levels of national identification and pride persist among the future leaders of the countries surveyed, even in the face of ongoing regional and linguistic divisions and weak state capacity, suggesting a strong potential basis for nation-building agendas if wider challenges of democratic performance, service provision and regional development can be addressed over time"--EBL

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Purpose</title>– The purpose of this paper is to investigate the principal determinants of women’s employment in the manufacturing sector of Bangladesh using a firm-level panel data from the World Bank’s “Enterprise Survey” for the years 2007, 2011 and 2013.
