Please join Handbook editors José Antonio Ocampo, Professor and Director, Economic and Political Development Concentration at SIPA and Chair of the UN Committee for Development Policy; and Machiko Nissanke, Professor Emeritus of Economics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London for a launch and discussion of their recently published Handbook of Development Economics: Critical Reflections on Globalisation and Development.

Additional speakers will include chapter authors: Maria S. Floro; Professor of Economics at American University and former Co-Director of the Graduate Program on Gender Analysis in Economics; Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, Vice-Chair, UN Committee for Development Policy, and Professor and Chair, Development Concentration at The New School; and Richard Nelson, Director of the program on Science, Technology, and Global Development, at the Columbia Earth Institute, and George Blumenthal Professor of International and Public Affairs, Business, and Law, at Columbia University.

The Handbook of Development Economics responds to the needs and aspirations of current and future generations of development economists by providing critical reference material alongside or in relation to mainstream propositions. Despite the potential of globalisation in accelerating growth and development in low and middle-income countries through the spread of technology, knowledge and information, its current practice in many parts of the world has led to processes that are socially, economically and politically and ecologically unsustainable.

Sponsored by SIPA’s Economic and Political Development Concentration and the Center for Development and Economic Policy.
