Max Spoor is Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Centre for the Study of Transition and Development (CESTRAD), Institute of Social Studies, The Hague, The Netherlands, and Extraordinary Professor, Centre of International Relations and International Cooperation (CIDOB), Barcelona, Spain.
This state-of-the-art critical 'development' reader examines the inter-relationships between globalisation, poverty and conflict. It complements current debates in the field of development studies and, in an era in which development fatigue seems to have become more profound than ever before, it brings the importance of development once again to the forefront.
The contributions represent current thinking on (and practice of) development policy, poverty reduction, the need for multi-level democratic institutions, and the containing and prevention of conflicts.
Critical analysis confronts the currently fashionable, mainstream neo-liberal tendency, founded in the "Washington Consensus" on "development"
Solid arguments and overwhelming evidence to sustain the critical analysis
A group of high-level and well-known scholars and development practitioners provide state-of-the-art contributions, creating a new critical "development" reader
