Description - Unity and Diversity in Development Ideas by

This second volume from the United Nations Intellectual History Project surveys the history of the UN's regional commissions and the ideas they have developed over the last 40 years. Each essay is devoted to one of the five regional commissions--Europe, Asia and the Far East, Latin America, Africa, and Western Asia--and how they have approached their mission of assessing the condition of regional economies and making prognoses about future conditions. The essays describe how each commission has added local perspectives to global debates over economic development and brought an authentic regional voice to the UN. Yves Berthelot is Senior Research Fellow at the CUNY Graduate Center and at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, UNITAR. He is director of the Geneva Office of the United Nations Intellectual History Project and President of the Comite Francais de Solidarite Internationale.
