A companion volume to Making Democracy Work for Pro-poor Development, this paper was written as a background note for the Commonwealth Expert Group on Democracy and Development, and was key in clarifying some of the major themes to be deliberated by the Group, chaired by the current Prime Minister of India, Hon. Manmohan Singh. It is in four parts. The first part reviews the extent of poverty and outlines some of the particular challenges confronting democracies in the current historical situation. The second part discusses the links between conflict, poverty and development on the one hand and democracy and good governance on the other, and possible ways by which support may be provided to democracies in combating poverty. The third part discusses possible strategies for winning global support, and the role of the Commonwealth in mobilising such support. The fourth part provides a summary of issues for the consideration of the Expert Group

At a time when the path of negotiation is itself under challenge, it is worth remembering that it is the resolution of differences through negotiations rather than the use of force which characterises the advance towards higher levels of civilisation. As such, meaningful negotiations cannot be avoided. It is our hope that wherever leaders meet now and in the future to discuss those issues vital to the organisation of the human community they might find in our Report some pointers as to the methods which might facilitate the reconciliation and the advancement of national and global interests

"The message is clear. The present situation is not sustainable. The world's financial safety is balanced on a knife-edge ... There is no room for complacency. We sense rather that a recognition of the gravity of the issues and of the dangers posed by the debt crisis in an interdependent world is growing. Full expression is not always given to this recognition, perhaps because of fear seeming to aggravate matters. But the situation has now been reached where collective determination to take action is imperative. The knowledge that such determination has been mustered will itself be a factor for greater sustainability."--The Report.'The capacity of developing countries to comply with demands by the IMF and banks for austerity measures has political limits. In the final analysis, these limits are represented by unrest and the threat of revolution. Before that point is reached, debtor countries will obviously refuse to meet the terms and conditions of contraction demanded of them; there is growing evidence that that point is fast approaching.' - From the Foreword by Commonwealth Secretary-General Shridath Ramphal
