Description

International Development Policy is a critical source of analyses of development policy trends and international cooperation for scholars, policy-makers, development professionals and journalists. It offers a diverse range of academic views from industrialised countries as well as emerging economies. Each book presents in-depth coverage of a chosen theme, and focuses on the latest trends in finance, trade and development. This collection examines the energy-development nexus: how it has intensified in recent years, how it shapes geopolitics and access to energy in Africa and it highlights how patchy energy governance is. The authors explore today's energy policy options in developing countries and emerging economies while questioning the role of development aid. International Development Policy is edited by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, an institution of higher education and research dedicated to advancing world affairs in Geneva, Switzerland.show more
