This timely Handbook 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 five 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.
Critical Acclaim
‘In the face of neoliberal globalization, environmental crises, growing intersectional inequalities and health uncertainties, the need to conceptualise international development as a political enterprise is greater than ever. This Handbook does so cogently and comprehensively. Brilliant contributions, from extraordinary scholars.’
– Jane Grugel, University of York, UK

‘Development is as much a political outcome as an economic one. This remarkable handbook, edited and written by the leading experts from developing countries themselves, is the essential pairing for any development economics course and should be on the shelf of every expert.’
– Kevin Gallagher, Boston University, US
