Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


This book is not a comparative exercise per se. The guidelines presented in the Introduction were shared and discussed with all of the contributors; however, ultimately, each of them was free to put the emphasis on certain aspects of the theoretical framework so as to best reflect the specificities of their respective cases. Not all of the points mentioned (e.g. compliance with the Paris Declaration, the role of ideas, etc.) are relevant to all the South–South cooperation (SSC) providers covered in the book. The editors were anxious to let authors focus on what is most relevant in the case at hand and to let research questions emerge from observations of the cases and fieldwork rather than from a common list of imposed problématiques defined ex ante.
