Indigenous Peoples, Poverty, and Development

This is the first book that documents poverty systematically for the world's indigenous peoples in developing regions in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The volume compiles results for roughly 85 percent of the world's indigenous peoples. It draws on nationally representative data to compare trends in countries' poverty rates and other social indicators with those for indigenous sub-populations and provides comparable data for a wide range of countries all over the world. It estimates global poverty numbers and analyzes other important development indicators, such as schooling, health and social protection. Provocatively, the results show a marked difference in results across regions, with rapid poverty reduction among indigenous (and non-indigenous) populations in Asia contrasting with relative stagnation – and in some cases falling back – in Latin America and Africa.

Brand China

In this new report, from the author of the widely discussed paper 'The Beijing Consensus', Ramo argues that China's national image, and the misalignment between China's image of itself and how it is viewed by the rest of the world, may be its greatest strategic threat. It argues that alongside its other reforms, China needs a 'fifth transition' if the trust and understanding necessary for the next stage of its development are to be achieved.By Joshua Cooper Rana.

Putting our House in Order: Recasting G8 policy Towards Africa. Arguing that the real obstacles to better policy towards Africa are not technical but political, the authors propose new mechanisms for placing Africa?s interests higher on the international political agenda and making G8 countries accountable for the impact of their policies. They show that the best thing G8 countries can do is to change those aspects of their existing policies that damage and disadvantage the continent. By David Mepham and James Lorge.

Lion Cubs? Lessons from Africa?s Success Stories

Lion Cubs? Lessons from Africa?s Success Stories. Contrary to what documentary-makers would have one believe, not every African country is riven by famine or civil war. Out of the headlines, several have been doing surprisingly well, growing their economies and building stable, responsible governments. How real are these successes? How were they achieved? And what can Western donors and other African governments learn from them? Policy Exchange?s Lion Cubs? Lessons from Africa?s Success Stories brings together an international group of contributors to explore these questions in four outspoken country case studies.
