We hear plenty of accounts of development failure, but what about success - how do we explain development policies that last the course, survive regime changes, and advance human and social development? This book draws on case studies of social, economic and political governance policies from Latin America, Africa and Asia to examine the circumstances in which governments and societies produce policies that overcome initial opposition and meet their aims.
ANTHONY BEBBINGTON is Professor and WILLY MCCOURT is Senior Lecturer in human resource management, both in the Institute for Development Policy and Management at the University of Manchester.
