New Issue: The Privatization of Development Assistance

We are pleased to announce that the Summer 2010 issue of the Journal of International Politics is now available online.  The issue contains the contents of our 2009 symposium on the Privatization of Development Assistance, which included the following papers:

After Sarah Dadush presented her paper at the Rubin Symposium last year in New York, the topic of Product (RED) stirred a discussion on William Easterly’s blog AidWatch.  (Read Easterly and Laura Freschi’s original post here, and Sarah Dadush’s response here.)  The published version is updated to reflect this discussion.

Issue 42:4 also contains two staff-written notes related to development assistance.  Michelle Scholastica Paul suggests a hybrid form for microfinance institutions, combining the strengths of for-profit firms and of nonprofit institutions.  Matthew Baca proposes a mechanism for adaptation funding that will help developing countries combat climate change.

The issue also contains our usual roundup of book annotations, many of which will be posted on this blog in the coming weeks.
