9780745334738: From the Local to the Global, Third Edition: Key Issues in Development Studies

In recent years the international development sector has found itself confronting new as well as persistent challenges to poverty eradication and the promotion of human rights. Climate change has loomed large as a crisis for development practitioners as well as environmentalists, with natural disasters occurring with increasing frequency and impacting severely on the most vulnerable in the Global South. The ongoing financial crisis has created recurrent recessions in the global North, while causing budget lines to be reduced for development aid across the Global South. From The Local to the Global highlights the extent to which the local and global are interconnected in today’s globalised economy and questions the legitimacy of the neoliberal model of development which propelled us into the crisis. This completely revised third edition takes stock of the international development environment as it embarks on new policy frameworks to confront new challenges. From The Local to the Global will continue to serve as an indispensable introduction to key development issues such as aid, debt, trade, migration, security, gender in development and climate change.

Review:

'Of global value to a radically changing world. It is essentially a survey of all the issues that affect the global South and shape the global North' -- Hector Maldonado Felix, Faculty of Social Sciences, Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Peru, and founder of the NGO Asociacion Gestion Salud y Poblacion. 'An ideal lift off point for anyone interested in the issues that underpin poverty and injustice at local and global levels. It combines accessible, informative writing on the most essential international development issues' -- Marina Sitrin, author of They Can't Represent Us: Reinventing Democracy from Greece to Occupy (with Dario Azzellini, Verso, 2014) and Everyday Revolutions: Horizontalism and Autonomy in Argentina (Zed Books, 2012).
