The politics of the developmental state

Handbook on the Politics of International Development

The Handbook on the Politics of International Development considers the increasing struggles facing international development in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It investigates the role global co-operation must play in resolving the multiple crises of the pandemic, resultant economic devastation and existing climate changes and external-debt concerns. Contributions identify the need to question current assumptions and approaches to international development in the context of how markets are constructed, states reformed and resources distributed.

Split across four thematic parts, this thought-provoking Handbook explores the concept and politics of development, development and contested globalization, the politics of development agendas and global actors in the politics of development. Chapters examine the politics of: developmental regionalism, crime, law and development in historical perspective, international monetary relations, food, global health, the global gender agenda, the sustainable development goals, development in the WTO, and private foundations.

Engaging and accessible, the Handbook on the Politics of International Development will be a key resource for students and scholars of international politics and relations, public policy, geopolitics and development studies.

Giuseppe Gabusi (T.wai & University of Turin) is author of the chapter “The politics of the developmental state” of the Handbook on the Politics of International Development (Elgar Handbooks in Development, 2022), edited by Melisa Deciancio, Pablo Nemiña, and Diana Tussie.
