Doing Good or Doing Better
development policies in a globalizing world

Doing Good or Doing Better

Scientific Council for Government Policy (wrr)

Monique Kremer, Peter van Lieshout and Robert Went (eds.)

Amsterdam University Press, Amsterdam 2009

This book on the future of development policies in a globalizing world brings together a number of leading academics to describe and theorise upon various kinds of development policies, such as aid, financial investments, partnerships, trade and peace-building. They provide insight into the muddled trajectories of development on various continents – Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe – and rethink the notion of development in a globalizing, interdependent world in areas such as migration, security and international justice.

The world is changing, and so is the unquestioning belief that development policies are always right. Instead of focusing on the rather limited notion of poverty, this book aims to deepen our understanding of the broad issue of development. What are the drivers of development? What new issues have arisen due to globali -zation? And what kinds of policies contribute to development in a world that is changing rapidly? Doing Good or Doing Better is both a description of the current ‘state of the art’ as well as an analysis of recent ideas and innovations.

This interdisciplinary edited volume serves as a background study for the wrr (Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy) advice on the future of development policies, that will be released separately. It has been edited by professor dr. Peter van Lieshout (member of the Council), and our staff members dr. Monique Kremer and dr. Robert Went (project coordinator), and brings together insights from external experts on a range of disciplines. The council is grateful to the authors for their contributions.
