Exploration in Development Issues

Nurul Islam (Author)
Synopsis I have done my research and writing predominantly on economic policy issues, be it trade and aid, development strategy, or food security. The articles are overwhelmingly policy-oriented; they tend to echo or represent the climate of debate, thinking and research in the different periods when they were written. The selection of articles was made in such a way that they fulfil, as far as possible, one or several of the following criteria: 1) they represent my main thinking and writing on that particular issue; 2) they were prominent in debate and discussion among academic economists/policy analysts during the time when they were written; 3) they retain some relevance and/or are of major or continuing interest in the current academic/policy discussions.
