South-South Relations in African Agriculture: Hybrid Modalities of Cooperation and Development Perspectives from Brazil and China

Published on 1 January 2019

South-South cooperation is becoming ever more important to states, policy-makers and academics.

Many Northern states, international agencies and NGOs are promoting South-South partnerships as a means of ‘sharing the burden’ in funding and undertaking development, assistance and protection activities, often in response to increased political and financial pressures on their own aid budgets. However, the mainstreaming of Southern-led initiatives by UN agencies and Northern states is paradoxical in many ways, especially because the development of a South-South cooperation paradigm was originally conceptualised as a necessary way to overcome the exploitative nature of North-South relations in the era of decolonisation.
