9780415667319: Development Organizations (Routledge Perspectives on Development)

Continuing debates over the meaning of development and awareness of the persistence of poverty have resulted in increasing concern over how to ‘do’ development. There are growing numbers of development organizations, undertaking different activities, at different scales, with different motivations, and differing levels of success. It is necessary to identify and evaluate these varied organizations, in order to recognize their successes and failures.

Development Organizations is the first introductory text to focus specifically on the variety of organizations involved in development policy and practice. It explores the range and role of organizations, including community-based organizations and civil society actors, international non-governmental organizations, state and other national-based actors, global forms of governance, international financial institutions and transnational corporations. The historical and contemporary role of each of these actors is considered, with analysis of complex theoretical debates surrounding their existence and their activities. The book also explores the political and contested nature of development activities promoted by these organizations, and their effects on society, the economy and the environment. These issues are also considered in context of the Millennium Development Goals; the agenda which currently impacts on the operation and outcomes of the broad range of development organizations.

This invaluable text is richly complimented throughout with case studies to help illustrate the operations of development organizations; from the impact of multinational oil companies in the Niger delta to the impact of IMF reforms in Latin America and the Caribbean. This clearly written and user friendly text contains a wealth of features to assist student learning, including start of chapter learning outcomes, and end of chapter summaries, discussion topics, and suggestions for further reading and relevant websites.

About the Author:

Dr Rebecca Shaaf is the subject leader for Geography in the School of Society, Enterprise and Environment at Bath Spa University. Her research and teaching interests are in the areas of development and sustainability. Her recent research focuses on the role of community organisations and NGOs in the achievement of sustainable wellbeing outcomes.

Review:

"Rebecca Schaaf’s ambitious text fills a glaring lacuna in development studies with its systematic examination of development organizations, from global level donor agencies to local NGOs. This clearly written and provocatively illustrated book is the first to critically scrutinize the breadth, motivation, histories and complexity of the entities that do development." Dr. Trevor Birkenholtz, Department of Geography at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA.
