International development policy : aid, emerging economies and global policies by GILLES CARBONNIER( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International development cooperation is undergoing a revolution in order to cope with global challenges that cut across the rich/poor and North/South divides. Beyond the fight against poverty, development aid is called upon to address global public goods. While intergovernmental negotiations stall, bilateral and multilateral aid agencies boast to tackle climate change, food insecurity, water and energy scarcity, pandemics, armed conflicts and disasters in weak states, migrations, etc. The emergence of new aid actors radically alters the traditional aid architecture and approaches. The increasing number of poor living in middle-income countries makes poverty alleviation more of a political than a technical endeavour. The book examines how this profoundly affects international development cooperation. It questions how far bilateral and multilateral aid agencies succeed in mainstreaming global issues in their operations. It assesses how emerging and traditional donors address competing objectives, often with diverging rationales

Ethnicity, communication and growth by Jean-Louis Arcand( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we consider the link often alleged between ethnic diversity and the growth rate of GDP per capita. We first assume that it is ethnic polarization rather than ethnic fragmentation that is harmful for growth so that the relationship may be non-linear. Second, we hypothesize that the impact of ethnic diversity on growth may depend on communication costs. This leads us to estimate a traditional growth rate equation on cross sectional data in a switching regression framework. In 'low communication costs countries', the relationship between growth and ethnic diversity is U-shaped. On the other hand, in 'high communication costs countries', growth is a decreasing function of ethnic diversity and the severity of the latter's deleterious impact is an increasing function of communication costs, proxied here by the illiteracy rate. The regime that a country belongs to is a function of two proxies for communication costs: the illiteracy rate and population density. The impact of ethnic diversity on growth seems not to operate through macroeconomic policy choices. Rather it is a direct transmission mechanism, in which ethnic diversity affects private and public resource allocation, that appears to dominate

Social capital in the context of development : which measure and which impact on women empowerment in Indonesia ? by Eleonora Lollo( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le capital social est un concept de plus en plus populaire en économie mais des ambiguïtés persistent quant à la manière de saisir l'aspect "social" de la vie humaine et d'interpréter le terme "capital". Par rapport aux précédents travaux, cette thèse fournit des outils analytiques nouveaux pour identifier et mesurer le capital social et étudier son rôle dans le bien-être individuel. Dans une perspective théorique, ces outils apportent un éclairage sur les raisons de ses différentes interprétations. Nous définissons d'abord le capital social comme l'ensemble des attentes et obligations que les individus accumulent lors des interactions et identifions trois dimensions le composant: l'homogénéité entre individus, la fréquence des contacts et la hiérarchisation des relations. Ces dimensions sont responsables de la fonction de coordination, attribuée au capital social, et du vaste éventail d'effets observés jusqu'à présent. Ce cadre est opérationnalisé à l'aide d'une mesure d'un index multidimensionnel au niveau individuel en Indonésie et un lien avec l'approche des capabilités est établi avec pour objectif de mieux identifier les canaux à travers lesquels le capital social impacte le bien être d'individus. Dans une perspective empirique, une étude des déterminants de l'empowerment des femmes est ensuite proposée avec, comme principale variable explicative, le capital social. Cette thèse démontre que le capital social est, tout d'abord, un concept fondamental dans la compréhension de la capacité à agir et dans le bien-être d'individus et que, de plus, celui-ci peut générer des effets négatifs sur l'empowerment des femmes, simultanément à ses effets positifs et prépondérants
Social Inequalities in China by Kelly Labar( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au regard des distorsions sociales qui ont suivi le mouvement de réformes initié en Chine à la fin des années 1970, cette thèse étudie les évolutions récentes relatives à trois principaux sujets : le marché du travail, le niveau d'éducation et le niveau de santé. En utilisant la base de données CHNS, je considère dans un premier temps les rendements du capital humain en Chine, étant donnés les besoins en gains de productivité liés à une économie plus compétitive. Je souligne l'augmentation des rendements de l'éducation et de la nutrition en Chine depuis 1991, soulignant également l'impact des réformes sur la manière dont les salaires sont fixés aujourd'hui. Cette conclusion apparaît dans un premier temps positive pour l'augmentation de la productivité et de la croissance dans l'avenir. Cependant, si les individus ne bénéficient pas d'un égal accès à l'éducation et à la santé, une plus forte rémunération de ces facteurs peut mener à une détérioration en termes d'inégalités. C'est pourquoi je me focalise dans un deuxième temps sur l'évolution relative au niveau d'éducation et de santé depuis le mouvement de réformes à travers deux canaux : la possible transmission du statut social des parents à leurs enfants, i.e. la mobilité sociale ; puis les inégalités de bien-être dans trois dimensions sociales que sont le revenu, l'éducation et la santé. Grâce à l'utilisation de matrices de mobilité ainsi que de stratégies économétriques, je démontre un niveau de mobilité salariale et en terme d'éducation en Chine dans la moyenne en comparaison à celui d'autres pays développés ou en développement. Cependant, l'impact croissant du salaire des parents sur la scolarisation des enfants peut se traduire par une mobilité plus faible dans le futur, dans la mesure où cela renforce les dynamiques inégalitaires. Mis en parallèle avec les résultats de l'analyse multidimensionnelle des inégalités de bien-être, je conclus que les inégalités sociales en Chine sont amenées à augmenter dans les années à venir, nécessitant des mesures politiques en faveur de l'amélioration de l'accès à l'éducation et à la santé
Too Much Finance? by Jean-Louis Arcand( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper examines whether there is a threshold above which financial development no longer has a positive effect on economic growth. We use different empirical approaches to show that there can indeed be "too much" finance. In particular, our results suggest that finance starts having a negative effect on output growth when credit to the private sector reaches 100% of GDP. We show that our results are consistent with the "vanishing effect" of financial development and that they are not driven by output volatility, banking crises, low institutional quality, or by differences in bank regulation and supervision
