Anthony P. D’Costa Achin Chakraborty (Editors), Dynamics of Asian Development Series

This volume is based on a conference organized in Kolkata by the Australia India

Kolkata in December 2015. The title of the conference was Instruments of

They are the changing nature of the relationship between state and capital, the mediating role of society in influencing developmental outcomes, to analyze the seemingly contradictory roles of the state in undertaking major state-sponsored social programs, and opening up greater spaces for the market, and to examine the dynamic relationship between the state and the form of democracy under changing political regimes. These three threads are present in this volume.

2020/12 – book; Author(s): Sachin Chaturvedi, Heiner Janus, Stephan Klingebiel et al.

This book offers a sound and clear understanding of the narratives, norms, and institutions as far as development cooperation in the context of Agenda 2030 is concerned.The authors emphasize the role of collective action as a method to foster the attainment of global policy frameworks such as Agenda 2030 across national, regional, and global levels, and diverse policy areas. However, regardless of the mechanism set to attain the SDGs, they doubt that its attainment is still feasible due to the characteristics of power struggles and unresolved contestations surrounding this global development agenda
