The South in world politics

By Christopher Alden, Sally Morphet and Marco Antonio Vieira


The South in World Politics is a timely analysis of the influence and effectiveness of developing states in shaping the international order from the politics of the Cold War to the challenges of globalization and the rising power of emerging economies. Serving as a mobilizing symbol for a diverse set of developing countries, the idea of the South is part of a strategy for managing relations with the more powerful industrialized North through collective activism in multilateral and regional organizations. Key themes addressed by the book include the dynamic role of leading states like India, Brazil and China, the growing importance of regional organizations and the rise of Southern civil society in shaping the political agenda and the ideological outlook of the global South. Finally, the book focuses on the implications of a raft of new challenges for the security and economic aspirations of developing states
