Turning Points in Development Thinking and Practice

Louis Emmerij
February 2006


"Why and when do turning points occur? How are they prepared? What are the choices before us when it comes to economic and social development policies? What is the role of culture in development? Do ideas play a role? What are the interests behind the ideas?
The present paper -- by Louis Emmerij of the United Nations Intellectual History Project (UNIHP), Graduate Center, City University of New York -- tries to answer these and other questions, and it compares the advantages and disadvantages of global development theories with regional and local development policies that put more emphasis on the role of culture in economic development. This 14-page paper is available online."
