Interrogating Development Theories through the ‘Rise of the South’

 By Emma Mawdsley (Department of Geography, University of Cambridge)

Globalisation, Transnationalism & Development Colloquium organized in association with Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE)

Abstract: The last decade or so has witnessed the spectacular growth in the visibility and activities of a very wide variety of the (so-called) ‘non-traditional’ development partners in the South, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. The first part of this seminar will critically explore the main features of this phenomenon, with a focus on Southern development partners. The second part of the seminar will include participatory exercises that use the lens of the ‘rise of the South’ to think critically about current global development ideas, politics and power.
