This valuable work will appeal to social science and history scholars, as well as readers interested in the history of contemporary Russia.

Release Date: 2015-06-25
Genre: Economic assistance

International development and aid will be prominent on the international agenda in 2015, given a number of high-profile events and conferences that will happen in the second half of the year, and which will set the agenda for the following decade and a half. The purpose of this book is to set all this in its historical context, and to show the strong linkages between aid and development priorities on the one hand and political realities and shifts on the other. It looks at different ideas about development (and the concepts of 'developing' and 'developed' countries) and how aid can support development. It makes it clear that, ultimately, development is aboutthe well-being of everyone, and of the Planet, and must be addressed as a global issue.
