Existing global frameworks for development cooperation are heavily dominated by the experiences of industrialized countries. However, emerging economies have begun to accelerate their development cooperation with other developing countries, and attempts to bring them into existing aid models have been met with caution and reservation. This expert and topical volume explores the development cooperation policies of China, India, Brazil and South Africa and compares them with those of Mexico and Western actors. In exploring the motivation and execution of these countries' development policies, the volume will analyze how South-South cooperation has evolved, and where it differs from traditional development cooperation. This vital new collection brings together first-hand experience from a range of national experts from these countries, to provide a forward-looking analysis of global frameworks and the evolution of a possible convergence of traditional and "emerging" development actors.
