International Development Assistance: New EADI Book
Shortly after the launch of "Building Development Studies for the New Millennium" we are proud and happy to present the next book in our Global Development series: International Development Assistance - Policy Drivers and Performance provides a comprehensive search for the basic political drivers of international development cooperation. Through extensive research, the work examines predominant world-views, societal value systems and foreign policy traditions, in order to find the policy drivers that vary nation to nation and how development assistance has evolved globally.
