The Key to Inclusive Development

Author Name: Moin Qazi | Format: Paperback | Genre : Business, Investing & Management | Other Details

The field of development has always been one in which the worlds of research and practice are in close relationship with each other and have to move in tandem. Ideas emanating from the top often find quick application. But equally important, in principle, is the reverse feedback—the need to orient researchers’ attention on the questions that are, or should be, on the policy agenda. Impactful academic research has the potential to improve the world we live in. It can enrich our culture, improve our health, develop our laws, inform our policies, invent new technology, and boost our quality of life. 

The academic world has diversified over the years to newer themes, among them public health, climate change and sustainability, water and natural resources governance, disaster management, social entrepreneurship, migrants and refugees. And there is a lot of research happening in areas with policy implications.

The book analyses the role of various policy instruments and strategies in bringing about improved social cohesion; increasing the levels of economic and social development; reducing the burdens of poverty, ill-health, and inequality; promoting the interests of marginalised groups; expanding the protection of social, civil, and political rights; protection of the environment; and various interventions for community development. In particular, it emphasises the pivotal role of human resources in institutional and organisational positionsfor the overall management of development programmes.
