Politics in the developing world

Over the last few decades, India has been not only a recipient of aid (at one time, the largest in the world), but also a provider of concessional loans, grants, technical assistance, peacekeeping forces, humanitarian assistance, debt relief, and so on. This chapter explores how and why a country that still has more absolutely poor people that the whole of sub-Saharan Africa gives development assistance to countries in Asia, Africa and beyond. It starts with a brief introduction to the issue of the ‘(re-)emerging’ development actors and then moves on to a more detailed analysis of India’s development cooperation.
