Globalization, development and human security

World poverty and development are more salient than ever on the global political agenda and the contributors to this volume, including Bjorn Hettne, Fantu Cheru, Jeffrey Haynes and Bonny Ibhawah, share a common intellectual aspiration to re-unite the study of development with the study of international relations or global politics.
