IERI Working Paper 2008-001
Rasigan Maharajh

This paper is a contribution to the discussion about globalisation, democracy and development. It proposes revisiting the current multilateral architecture for economic growth and development whilst simultaneously encouraging greater coherence, cooperation and coordination amongst the countries of Southern Africa. Competing conceptual definitions, contextual histories and performance data regarding current institutions and agencies are then presented. The resulting proposals for global reform favours the identification of the critical role played by knowledge, technology and innovation systems in redressing the inequalities and asymmetries of mere 'market-led' development.
