Nevertheless, as emerging powers engage more deeply in development cooperation, they face obstacles similar to this experienced earlier by advanced economies. The rationale is that emerging powers want to use development cooperation as a force for good in a way that assumes traditional donors do not.

This paper explores how they joined, why they left and suggests how they could return. It points to a lack of trust and open communication among donors and emerging powers and an inability on the part of the recipient countries to broker a deal that would keep the Partnership together.

In this regard, the book is strongly framed by a bias towards emerging donors and is influenced by a post-colonial narrative. They can be reached at anthea. Now, emerging powers are coming up with their own new ideas.

This misses the fact that the ground battle is how power is in play in coordination at the national level in beneficiary countries. The second section explores the experiences of traditional donors and touches on key themes in the ongoing debate on aid effectiveness. Unfortunately, this is a problematic assumption for a number of reasons, not least of which is because it accepts too much of donor discourse at face value.
