India’s Approach to Development Cooperation

India is emerging as a key player in development cooperation. The volume of its assistance and reach has expanded significantly in the past five years. More importantly, India has become a leader in advocating for a distinctly southern development discourse and knowledge generation. India’s Approach to Development Cooperation traces and analyzes the evolution of Indian development cooperation. The new book highlights India’s significance both to global development and as an effective tool of Indian foreign policy. Focusing on how India has played an important role in supporting development efforts of partner countries in South Asia and beyond, the volume is unique in addressing this void in development scholarship and provides a comprehensive overview of Indian development coop­eration from diverse voices: Indian academics, government officials, and nongovernmental organization (NGO) leaders, as well as Chinese and Western perspectives.
