Development and the Challenge of Globalisation

Published on 22 November 2002

Amid a torrent of claims and counter-claims about the pros and cons of globalisation, this book takes a critical look at the actors, institutions and processes that mediate the relationship between the forces of globalisation and the poverty experienced by the majority of the world’s people. The chapters in this important book clearly demonstrate that globalisation is a process with repercussions that extend far beyond the power centres of the North where global economic policies are formulated. The book will be of interest to researchers, practitioners and activists in development.
