Microfinance

Original Synopsis

"Microfinance has a total of 240 pages which are papers from writer 'Jude L. Fernando'. Microfinance is defined as the financial services offered to the poor for the purpose of promoting small-scale enterprises, and as such it is one of the most important topics in development studies and a burgeoning area in economics. This volume provides a much-needed historical, political and economic dimension to the current knowledge on microfinance. Collectively, the contributors chart the relationship between the prevailing popularity of microfinance and the consolidation of neoliberal economic ideology worldwide. They demonstrate how microfinance, as a market-friendly approach to development, coincides with the global trend towards diminishing the role of the state in economic development, basic healthcare, education and welfare. The articles in the volume focus on the empirical analyses of the experience of microfinance in women’s everyday lives, but rejects the connection between microfinance and women’s empowerment so often imputed in literature. This book offers regional, cultural and other explanations for variable assessments of microfinance and empowerment. It fills a huge gap in published microfinance literature and will be of great interest to postgraduates and professionals in the fields of economics, international finance and banking. 2004-08-02 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

The Political Economy of NGOs

Original Synopsis

"The Political Economy of NGOs has a total of 352 pages which are papers from writer 'Jude L. Fernando'. Jude L. Fernando explores the paradoxical relationship between NGOs and capitalism, showing that supposedly progressive organizations often promote essentially the same policies and ideas as existing governments. The book examines how a diverse group of NGOs have shaped state formation in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. It argues that, rather than influencing state formation for the better, NGOs have been integrated into the capitalist system and their language adopted to give traditional exploitative social relations a transformative appearance. This enlightening study will give pause to those who see NGOs as drivers of true social change and will encourage students of development studies to make a deeper analysis of state formation. 2011-06-15 time of publication of the book, [-Pluto Press-]"

The Universal Social Safety-Net and the Attack on World Poverty

Original Synopsis

"The Universal Social Safety-Net and the Attack on World Poverty has a total of 202 pages which are papers from writer 'Anthony Clunies-Ross, Mozammel Huq'. The book is concerned with strategy and tactics for directing that small slice of world income into filling the gap. This must be done country by country, on the initiative of each country’s government: with the maximum involvement of its own civil society, and with the rich world also making a contribution. To add momentum, the international community needs to adopt targets far more specific than the fifty percent extreme ‘poverty reduction’ of the first Millennium Development Goal. 2013-10-30 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Managing Development

Original Synopsis

"Managing Development has a total of 320 pages which are papers from writer 'Junji Nakagawa'. Globalization in the 1990s provided both opportunities and challenges for developing and transition economies. Though for some, it offered the chance to achieve economic growth through active involvement in the integrated and liberalized world economy, it also increased their vulnerability to external shocks and volatility. As a consequence, stakeholders at every level of the development and transition process – international organizations, national governments and the private sector – had to review their strategies in order to adjust to the new world economic environment. As the Mexican peso crisis of 1994-1995 and the Asian financial crisis of 1997-1998 showed dramatically, the cost of maladjustment was not only very high but it also affected many more stakeholders than before, due to the contagious effects of crises. This revealing book analyzes the different methods employed to manage globalization and development. Bringing together an international team of contributors, including Barbara Stallings, Alicia Giron and J. C. Ferraz, it will prove to be a valuable resource for those involved in the fields of development economics and political economy. 2006-04-18 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

A Paradigm for a Peace Movement

Original Synopsis

"A Paradigm for a Peace Movement has a total of 88 pages which are papers from writer 'Jude Lal Fernando, Linda Hogan (series editor.)'. Both the nationalist and liberal paradigms employed respectively by the Sinhala Buddhist Sangha and the Christian churches have failed to solve the ethnic, as well as Buddhist-Christian tensions, in Sri Lanka. This reflects on the moral failure of Asian Buddhism and Western Christianity. This book explores how the two religious traditions could contribute to an alternative paradigm for peace among diverse groups by transcending the liberal and nationalist models. This alternative paradigm is informed by the peace movement in Vietnam, led by Thich Nhat Hanh, and civil rights and peace movement in America, led by Martin Luther King Jr. 2007-01-01 time of publication of the book, [--]"

Bangladesh

Original Synopsis

"Bangladesh has a total of pages which are papers from writer 'David Lewis'. Since its hard-won independence from Pakistan, Bangladesh has been ravaged by economic and environmental disasters. Only recently has the country begun to emerge as a fragile, but functioning, parliamentary democracy. The story of Bangladesh, told through the pages of this concise and readable book, is a truly remarkable one. By delving into its past, and through an analysis of the economic, political and social changes that have taken place over the last twenty years, the book explains how Bangladesh is becoming of increasing interest to the international community as a portal into some of the key issues of our age. In this way the book offers an important corrective to the view of Bangladesh as a failed state. 2011-10-31 time of publication of the book, [-Cambridge University Press-]"

Peace Processes

Original Synopsis

"Peace Processes has a total of 248 pages which are papers from writer 'John D. Brewer'. Peace processes are mostly very fragile. This engagingly written book takes a bold new approach to the topic by beginning from the premise that sociology can identify those factors that help to stabilize them. The book draws a distinction between the political and social dimensions of peace processes, arguing that each is dependent on the other. Consideration of the social peace process, neglected in conventional treatments of the subject, is made central to this volume. While complementing current approaches that emphasize institutional reform in politics, law and economics, it pays due attention to sociological factors such as gender, civil society, religion, the deconstruction of violent masculinities, restorative justice, emotions, hope, forgiveness, truth recovery, social memory and public victimhood. These important themes are fully illustrated with examples and in-depth case studies from across the globe. The book locates itself within the growing debate about the positive impact of global civil society on peace and identifies the new forms of peace work engendered by globalization. It will be essential reading for students and scholars of peace studies in politics, international relations and sociology departments. 2013-04-25 time of publication of the book, [-John Wiley & Sons-]"

Income Support for the Unemployed

Original Synopsis

"Income Support for the Unemployed has a total of 225 pages which are papers from writer 'Milan Vodopivec'. With the aim to provide guidelines for countries wishing to introduce or improve income support systems for the unemployed, the book summarizes the evidence about the performance of five such systems: unemployment insurance, unemployment assistance, unemployment insurance savings accounts, severance pay, and public works. These systems are evaluated by two sets of criteria: (i) performance criteria, evaluating how well these systems work A? how they protect incomes and what other, particularly efficiency related, effects they may have; and (ii) design and implementation criteria, evaluating how these systems fit the country A? how suitable are these programs given country-specific conditions, chief among them being labor market and other institutions, the capacity needed for administering income support programs, the size of the informal sector, and prevalence of private transfers. Income Support Systems for the Unemployed also offers summary evaluations of alternative systems by describing the strengths and weaknesses of each system and pointing out the country specific circumstances which are particularly conducive to performance. 2004-01-01 time of publication of the book, [-World Bank Publications-]"
