In recent years, development aid has become the subject of much discussion. This urged the WRR to examine in detail what form development aid should take in the era of globalization. On the basis of interviews with experts and an extensive literature survey, the WRR produced a report presenting recommendations for far-reaching changes to the organisation of development policy. In October 2010, the new Dutch government decided to use the report as the basis of a thorough modernization of the Netherlands’ policy on development aid. This book is based on the WRR report. It uses the many responses to the report in the first half of 2010, which have led to more elaboration on reasoning, new themes and more comprehensive analyses.
