After 2015: International Development Policy at a Crossroads


Part of the Rethinking International Development series Series


After 2015: International Development Policy at a Crossroads by A. Sumner, M. Tiwari

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have played a major role in focusing policy since their original incarnation in the mid to late 1990s but what happens when we no longer have the MDGs - what will guide policy after 2015? This book discusses the world and development policy up to and beyond 2015.


'This book is GREAT! Our world has been dislocated by the current crisis. This book throws us a life-line. It is readable and entertaining, but also serious, strategic and thoughtful - a significant attempt to re-think development on a global scale. I hope it sells a million copies.' - Simon Maxwell CBE, Director, Overseas Development Institute, London

'This is a book which does what it sets out to do - to look at key issues in international development, to explain the context and to propose some pathways ahead as we enter a more complex, global society. One to add to the collection.' - Professor Myles Wickstead, Open University and former Head of Secretariat, Commission for Africa

'Sumner and Tiwari pose important questions. Read what they have to say as a guide to important debates on some enduring issues.' - Richard Manning, former chair Development Assistance Committee, OECD

'This book is an insightful and invaluable roadmap to the world of development policy.' - Dr Claire Melamed, Head of Policy, Action Aid

'This book widens our discussion with a fresh perspective. It enhances our understanding of the dynamics of development in the context of critical global changes.' - Dr Shankar P Sharma, Former Vice Chairman, National Planning Commission, Government of Nepal

'A very interesting book addressing the crucial questions, not only for researchers or policy makers but for everyone.' - Dr Tran Tuan, Director, Research and Training Centre for Community Development, Vietnam'
