FASoS researchers publish book on South-South Development Cooperation

Elsje Fourie, Wiebe Nauta and Emma Mawdsley (Cambridge) have published a new edited volume with Routledge, titled ‘Researching South-South Development Cooperation: The Politics of Knowledge Production’.

This is the culmination of an international collaboration that began with a workshop in Maastricht in 2015. FASoS’ own RSF and ART funds helped to bring the project to fruition.

Over the last two decades the expanding role of Southern countries as development partners has led to tectonic shifts in global development ideas, practices, norms and actors. Researchers are faced with new questions around identity, power and positionality in global development. ‘Researching South-South Development Cooperation’ examines this rapidly growing and complex phenomenon, asking to what extent existing assumptions, conceptual frameworks and definitions of development need to be reframed in the context of researching this new landscape.

This interdisciplinary book draws on voices from across the Global South and North to explore the epistemological and related methodological challenges and opportunities associated with researching South-South development cooperation, asking what these trends mean for the politics of knowledge production. Chapters are interspersed with shorter vignettes, which aim to share examples from first-hand participation in and observation of South-South development cooperation initiatives.
