This book offers a concise and accessible introduction to the main themes and debates in the field of Law and Development.

Starting with a clear and readable overview of the key concepts and theories of development, the authors probe the issues which arise in both private law and public law as well as in international economic relations. The book also brings in key debates relating to politics and identity – especially highlighting gender and development as a topic that poses some of the biggest challenges for institutional conceptions of development.

It will be essential reading for students, practitioners and policy-makers needing to quickly gain an understanding of the core principles of this multi-faceted topic.
