Aid and ebb tide : a history of CIDA and Canadian development assistance by David R Morrison( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aid and Ebb Tide: A History of CIDA and Canadian Development Assistance examines Canada's mixed record since 1950 in transferring over $50 billion in capital and expertise to developing countries through ODA. It focuses in particular on the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the organization chiefly responsible for delivering Canada's development assistance. Aid and Ebb Tide calls for a renewed and reformed Canadian commitment to development cooperation at a time when the gap between the world's richest and poorest has been widening alarmingly and millions are still being born into poverty and human insecurity."--Jacket

The paradoxes of peacebuilding post-9/11 by Stephen Baranyi( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What kind of peace is possible in the post-9/11 world? Is sustainable peace an illusion in a world where foreign military interventions are replacing peace negotiations as starting points for postwar reconstruction? What would it take to achieve durable peace in contexts as different as Afghanistan, Mozambique, and Sri Lanka?" "Grappling with these questions, this book presents six case studies authored by respected peacebuilding practitioners in their own societies. The studies address two cases of relative success (Guatemala and Mozambique), three cases of renewed but deeply fraught efforts (Afghanistan, Haiti, and the Palestinian Territories), and the case of Sri Lanka, where peacebuilding was aborted but where the outlines of a new peace process can be discerned. The book also includes original analyses of demobilization, disarmament, and reintegration processes in three different contexts, written by teams of Northern and Southern analysts." "This timely volume bridges the gap between minimalist and maximalist approaches to peacebuilding, as well as giving voice to Southern researchers in Northern-dominated debates. It will interest practitioners and students of peace, security, and development studies, as well as policymakers at many levels of government."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seeking improved health and increased income have long been common goals. Those who make the case that free trade will help everyone argue that the growth from increased trade will be shared and will improve people's lives. But they have not answered the fundamental question of how to formulate trade policy to simultaneously achieve growth and benefit health
The currency transaction tax : rate and revenue estimates by Rodney Schmidt( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Currency Transaction Tax (CTT) is emerging as a leading new financial instrument for governments seeking to raise large amounts of global, independent, and stable monies for international development and projects addressing global issues such as public health and climate change. Key questions in CTT development are: what should be its rate, how much money would it raise, and how would it affect foreign exchange markets? This publication exploits the fact that CTT, which has not yet been implemented, is functionally equivalent in foreign exchange markets to the bid-ask spread: both are transaction costs.--Publisher's description

Fifty years on, the reform of the Bretton Woods institutions -- the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund -- has become a lively issue. The G-7 industrialized countries took a first bite at this subject during their Halifax Summit, and the debate continues. A group of experts from all continents met in Ottawa to give challenging advice to the summiteers and beyond, ranging from the view that the G-7 itself is in eclipse to an argument for turning the IMF into a central world bank. This book contains the seven papers and a summary of the discussion from that meeting, sponsored jointly by the International Development Research Centre and the North-South Institute
