In recent years, the international development sector has found itself confronting new and persistent challenges to poverty eradication and the promotion of human rights. From The Local to the Global highlights the extent to which the local and global are interconnected in today’s world economy and questions the legitimacy of the neo-liberal model of development that they argue has propelled us into the crisis.
            This completely revised third edition takes stock of the international development environment as it embarks on new policy frameworks to confront new challenges, ensuring that From the Local to the Global will continue to serve as an indispensable introduction to key development issues such as aid, debt, trade, migration, security, gender, and climate change.
