Meeting the challenge of development in the contemporary age of globalization demands greater empirical knowledge. While most research emanates from the developed world, the Global Development Network Book Series, in partnership with leading academic publishers, is designed to give voice to researchers from the developing and transition world – those experiencing first-hand, the promises and pitfalls of development.

This series presents the best examples of innovative and policy-relevant research from diverse countries, such as Nigeria and China, India and Argentina, Russia and Egypt. It encompasses all major development topics ranging from the details of privatization and social safety nets to broad strategies to realize the Millennium Development Goals and achieve the greatest possible progress in developing countries.
