To mark its 30th Anniversary, in 2013-14, CUTS International organised a series of lectures around the world, engaging eminent scholars and practitioners with the topics of its interest and work on Trade, Regulations and Governance.
This Lecture Series examined whether the resources are adequate in meeting contemporary and emerging development challenges; is political will lacking and why it may be so and what are the macro-micro gaps in addressing development challenges and how they may be bridged. They were discussed in the context of the fact that the rest of this decade will experience a number of international events to shape and reshape the future direction of global development discourse. While that will be largely state-led, the content of this volume not only covered the views and concerns of non-state actors on contemporary issues in development discourse but also, and more importantly, it provides a much needed direction to strengthen the state and civil society relationship through historical evidence, and not just views.
