  • Regulating Corporate Responsibility and Finance for Development
    • Authors: Carlos Lopez
      Abstract: Abstract The article explores how a new legally binding instrument on human rights can play a role in making business corporations, and the private sector in general, fit to contribute to the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations. The current overreliance on private sector investment as key instrument for development without adequate safeguards and accountability mechanisms is misplaced and generates distrust .

  • Financialization of the South African Economy
    • Authors: Seeraj Mohamed
      Abstract: Abstract This article discusses important aspects of the financialization of the South African economy during the post-apartheid period. The growth of the financial services sector and financialization of the economy has led to misallocation of capital within the economy that has hindered much needed structural economic change. The lack of structural change has led to an inability to deal with socio-economic legacies of colonialism and apartheid related to very high levels of inequality, poverty and unemployment.

  • Affirming Our World: Gender Justice, Social Reproduction, and the
           Sustainable Development Goals
    • Authors: Colleen O’Manique; Pieter Fourie
      Abstract: Abstract The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are presented as the new global framework to rid the world of poverty and inequality. While emerging from widespread consultation, we argue that they perpetuate rather than challenge the systemic drivers of gender injustice, silencing feminist critiques which demand systemic transformation. Instead, liberal feminism and its more insidious twin, economic neoliberalism, have captured mainstream development discourse. Unless new forms of agency emerge through truly transformative local strategies and global alliances, inequality and gender injustice will remain the norm.

  • Sovereign Debt Restructuring After Argentina
    • Authors: Arturo C. Porzecanski
      Abstract: Abstract Sovereign debt restructurings may experience marginal changes as a result of recent modifications in contractual terms being incorporated into new bond issues, but for the most part they will likely resemble what has generally worked so well in recent decades to the satisfaction of most governments and private creditors. The statutory reforms that have been proposed to date are highly unlikely to gain traction for a variety of reasons, including the prospect that they would have been stymied when confronted with a rogue sovereign debtor such as Argentina.

  • Dynamics of Institutional Proliferation in Financing for Development: The
           birth of the AIIB
    • Authors: Mehmet Hecan
      Abstract: Abstract Using the case of the newly launched Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank (AIIB), this article aims to uncover possible dynamics driving institutional proliferation in the global development landscape. These dynamics include the Global South’s growing desire to participate in international financial management, the existing finance gap requiring a multilateral solution in the face of market failures, the demand for more effective development institutions, the need to deal with massive infrastructural challenges, and supplier countries’ potential pursuit of their national interests over development institutions. The article also explores policy implications of these dynamics in terms of the global development regime.

  • Contractual Vs. Rules-Based Approaches to Sovereign Debt Restructuring
    • Authors: Jürgen Kaiser
      Abstract: Abstract Possible reforms to global sovereign debt restructuring procedures have largely been categorized as either ‘contractual/market-based’ or ‘statutory’. A closer look to the major Collective Action Clauses proposal shows that this is a false dichotomy. While Collective Action Clauses are useful technical instruments, they are by no means a substitute for a comprehensive debt restructuring framework.

  • Rethinking Economies of Scale Towards Network Economies
    • Authors: Gerardo Patacconi; Fabio Russo
      Abstract: Abstract The authors reflect on the growth opportunities for small-sized companies from models and practices that are based on spatial and business interaction, cooperation and competitiveness between firms as well as on integration with local systems and international supply chains. The article argues that enterprises realize significant economies of scale when they are co-localized and linked together-through networks, cooperatives, consortia or clusters. This has a positive impact on their ability to access markets and resources, to integrate into local and global value chains as well as to generate innovation. Clusters and networks of enterprises become an effective model to foster inclusive and sustainable industrial development.

  • China in Africa: A call for Makumism in Africa’s development
    • Authors: Ibrahim Farah; Valentine Opanga; Sekou Toure; Sarah Ninga
      Abstract: Abstract This article raises more questions than answers. For example, who benefits from the relations between Africa and China? Is the relationship between China and Africa all about business or is it about renewed superpower rivalries? Technically speaking, the scramble for Africa’s resources—be it by the Chinese or others—is business. But, there is also need to question whether it is altruistic as in supporting Africa’s development or merely acquiring its resources. Finally, the article calls for Makumism—or looking outside from inside—as a framework for analysis of this complex relationship ‘model’ as it emphasizes the need to focus on a two-way, mutually beneficial relationship.

  • Industrial Development Within the Blue Economy: ‘What these Ithacas
           mean’
    • Authors: Annalee C. Babb
      Abstract: Abstract The article suggests the destiny of small island developing states (SIDS) matters more than ever amid global economic, political, social and environmental insecurity. It examines Greek antiquity and the idea of development arguing that SIDS must recast industry if they are to benefit from the blue economy and technological innovation in niche areas of specialization, including those linked to energy and sustainable resource management.

  • Industrialization in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
    • Authors: Nobuya Haraguchi; Kazuki Kitaoka
      Abstract: Abstract In contrast to the Millennium Development Goals, the newly established sustainable development goals (SDGs) aim not only to eradicate poverty worldwide, but also to ensure inclusive and sustainable long-term growth for continuous improvements in human well-being. As industrialization can be an essential driver for achieving all SDGs, this article illustrates how manufacturing development can be made more inclusive and sustainable for low- and middle-income countries, in particular from the perspective of structural change.

  • Sustainable Production: Can industry go truly green?
    • Authors: Heinz Leuenberger; Hassan Mehdi
      Abstract: Abstract Does industry today have the potential to go truly green, or does economic progress invariably come at the expense of environmental degradation? Based on examples taken from around the world, this article outlines both the conceptual justification and the empirical evidence behind the viability of the green industry concept. In addition, concrete recommendations are put forward which are seen as enabling the realization of a green industry.

  • Sustainable Industrial Transformation: For whom and where to start?
    • Authors: Anabella Rosemberg
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Climate change and the need to shift to low-carbon societies require a massive transformation in how economies and industries function. This article outlines a framework for achieving sustainable industrial transformation in pursuit of fulfilling the Paris Climate Agreement and the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, with a focus on the impact on workers. At the core of this transformation is the Just Transition for workers which aims at setting the right policy goals across environmental, social and economic pillars and securing public support for achieving a zero-carbon, zero-poverty future.

  • Running Up That Hill? The Challenges of Industrialization in the East
           African Community
    • Authors: Andrew Mold
      Abstract: Abstract This article explores why the level of industrialization and manufacturing has remained so stubbornly low within the East African Community. The paper argues that the manufacturing sector’s development is stunted because of a common set of factors – firstly, the international context is now extremely difficult for new players to enter into global manufacturing. Secondly, there has been a collective failure to actively implement industrialization policies. The paper concludes that the best option for the development of EAC industry is to focus on both ‘recapturing domestic markets’ and simultaneously exploiting better the potential of regional markets.

  • Neo-extractivism and the Resource Curse Hypothesis: Evidence from Ecuador
    • Authors: Andrea Cori; Salvatore Monni
      Abstract: Abstract The aim of this article is to evaluate the policies carried out by the Government of Ecuador regarding the management of natural resources in the context of the Revolución Ciudadana, which was designed to create a society based on Buen Vivir. The choice of intensifying the mining sector shows a change in the government’s philosophy (from Sumak Kawsay to neo-extractivism) and requires an analysis that highlights the possible risks outlined by the extensive literature on the Resource Curse Hypothesis. This article analyzes the conditions, which are essential for avoiding the Resource Curse Hypothesis, in order to assess the economic effectiveness of the change of perspective, operated, under the Revolución Ciudadana.

    • Authors: Richard Kozul-Wright; Piergiuseppe Fortunato
      Abstract: Abstract This article discusses how active industrial policy and south–south coordination mechanisms can facilitate the strategic insertion of developing economies in the global markets and production networks. It proposes an integrated approach to trade, investment and industrial challenges and stresses the importance of political leadership and effective governance structures.

  • Inclusive Industrialization and Entrepreneurship
    • Authors: Wim Naudé; Paula Nagler
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Industrialization does not necessarily lead to inclusive development. The ‘trickle-down’ effect that is implicit in many theoretical models seems inadequate given persistent and even rising income inequalities. In this article, we ask why the expectation that industrialization will achieve a ‘more equal income distribution’ does not often materialize, and provide an answer by analyzing the nature of entrepreneurial-driven technological innovation. We conclude with a set of policy recommendations.

  • Social Protection, Human Rights, and Please
    • Authors: Ryan Higgitt
      Abstract: Abstract Increasing attention is now being given to linking social protection with human rights. This article accounts for the change in strategy in terms of the failure of a development agenda heretofore dominated not just by neoliberalism but, more generally, the rationality of economics as science. A case is made that the World Bank is resisting human rights because it doesn’t want to give up the prevailing, scientized definition of ‘human’ enabling World Bank hegemony.

  • Fundamental Debates and Policy Choices for Supporting Innovation in Africa
    • Authors: Sara S. Grobbelaar; Sylvia Schwaag Serger
      Abstract: Abstract Over the past three decades, a range of attempts have been made to raise the importance of science, technology and innovation on the policy agenda in Africa. This article explores four themes along which growth paths and patterns may be realized, namely regional and global integration, inclusive innovation, priorities and approaches to diversify African economies, and the role of the state. The outcome of a survey highlighted an overwhelming consensus on the importance of education, functioning institutions and good framework conditions but also on the importance of a more inclusive approach to innovation both as a necessity and a significant opportunity for Africa.
