While many countries may embrace globalization at the conceptual level, the specifics of implementation vary greatly from country to country. Testing Global Interdependence poses such questions as: How is openness exercised? How does a country join the international globalization trend? What mechanisms are available to help societies adjust to globalization? The book draws upon the diverse experiences of multiple countries as they react to the practicalities of globalization and succeeds in discovering the gains resulting from particular trade policies, anti-poverty measures, migration patterns and foreign aid packages. The diverse narratives contained within the book ultimately suggest how to limit globalization’s negative aspects and ensure constructive engagement in the global community.

This, the first book in the Global Development Network series, brings together the views of researchers from the developing and developed world and provides models of successful research conducted in developing and transition countries.

This study will appeal to academics and researchers in political economy, development studies, international economics, migration and globalization as well as public policy. In addressing policy implications, the work will also be of great value to policy-oriented researchers, policymakers and development agencies worldwide.
