China and India’s Development Cooperation in Africa
by Philani Mthembu | 2018-03-27 | 9783319695013

Explaining the determinants of China and India’s development cooperation in Africa cannot be achieved in simple terms. After collecting over 1000 development cooperation projects by China and India in Africa using AidData, this book applies the method of qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) to understand the motives behind their development cooperation. Mthembu posits that neither China nor India were solely motivated by one causal factor, whether strategic, economic or humanitarian interests or the size of their diaspora in Africa. China and India are driven by multiple and conjunctural factors in providing more development cooperation to some countries than others on the African continent. Only when some of these respective causal factors are combined is it evident that both countries disbursed high levels of development cooperation to some African countries.

From MDGs to Sustainable Development Goals
by Siphamandla Zondi and Philani Mthembu | 2018-01-12 |

This book is the first in a series that aims to help readers understand the diversity of African academic thinking around the MDGs and their success (or lack thereof); and the transition into the SDGs.

The questions this book looks to examine are:

• How far has the implementation of the aspirations enunciated in the UN Millennium Declaration gone? and

• Can any measurable progress made towards the implementation of the MDGs be equated to a serious commitment by the world to achieve the now adopted SDGs?

These questions lie at the heart of discussions that the transition from the MDGs to the SDGs generated on the African continent and beyond. They are questions that are not being adequately addressed by dominant discourses on development; discourses haunted by the globally hegemonic paradigm of neoliberalism and its complicity in the perpetuation of what has been called the imperiality of world development, and a colonial model of the world as we know it.
