The editors of this volume are Elizabeth Sidiriopoulos, national director of the South African Institute of International Affairs; Sachin Chaturvedi, based at a think tank sponsored by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, and Thomas Fues of the German Development Institute. As indicated by the editors in the introduction, this book originated in a workshop held in 2007 on the development cooperation policies of five G20 emerging power nations: Brazil, India, China, South Africa, and Mexico. The book includes five case studies on the experiences of these countries, preceded by four chapters on development cooperation, South-South cooperation, and lessons from the experiences of traditional aid policies. The authors are members of a network of think tanks and universities that collaborate through the Managing Global Governance (MGG) programme funded by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
