  • What does development mean?
  • Is there a human right to development?

  • Should Eradication of Poverty or Diminution of Radical Inequality be the Principal Focus of Developmental Policy?
  • What are the macro-economic theories of development? And how have they informed development policy?
  • How does development work in practice?

Featuring case studies throughout this textbook provides a philosophical introduction to an incredibly topical issue studied by students within the fields of applied ethics, global justice, economics, politics, sociology and public policy.
