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.
