Description

The purpose of the book is to examine the conceptual evolution of ‘social development’ during the post-colonial era, and to see how various institutions of the UN system have tried to engage with this issue, both in terms of intellectual and technical advance, and operationally. The book examines this through a series of engaging case studies – humanitarian enterprise, hunger and malnutrition, disease, education and water resources.
