With a number of countries emerging as key players in international development the study group seeks to provide information and support to scholars and practitioners concerned with the many aspects and issues raised by the rising powers as development actors. While much of the debate so far has been the rising powers as state actors we are also interested in the diverse range of non-state actors from these countries that also play increasing roles in international development.
