Abstract

This annual review highlights some of the new areas of concern for the development community and new areas of research. Part I discusses the global financial crisis, its causes, developing country responses and the implications for development going forward. Part II considers the growing literature on middle-income countries. Part III looks briefly at low-income countries, whether the recent increase in growth in Africa is sustainable, and the literature on post-conflict reconstruction. Part IV examines the proliferation of new models for the post Washington Consensus, post Beijing Consensus era. Part V presents some critiques of development models and the development field more generally. Part VI summarizes the ongoing efforts to come up with a Post-2015 development agenda. Part VII considers the changing role of international financial institutions.

Keywords: Law and development, middle-income countries, BRICS, sustainable development, Post-2015 Development Agenda, international financial institutions
